First Step

First Step



It’s a long way from here, London,

To Alabama;

But, I did take the first step today,

I stopped drinking.


It is the first day, who knows?

Maybe tomorrow I’ll fail;

But, here, now, I am sober,

And tomorrow will be a new day.


The end of alcohol is just the first step,

And between here and Alabama,

And there are many many more,

And many other bad habits to end.


The first step is taken;


You’re going to see me walk, run

You’re going to see me sprout eagle’s wings and fly.
