I don't know, but I've been told
If you ain't busy livin', then you're getting old
That always seemed to make good sense to me

So I've been running my whole life
Diving in, never thinking twice
Chasing down what life had in store for me

Ain't nothing gonna stop this train from moving
Gonna grab hold and keep on singing

La, la, la, la, la, la, life rolls on
La, la, la, la, la, la, life rolls on

I don't know but it seems to me
A chair and the sand and a summer breeze
And a sunset, man, that's where I belong
So sit down here right next to me
We'll toast to love and living free
And watch the tide roll in all night long

As sure as the sun and the moon keep shining
We'll be here and we'll be singing

La, la, la, la, la, la, life rolls on
La, la, la, la, la, la, life rolls on
Yeah life rolls on

As sure as the sun and the moon keep shining
We'll be here and we'll be singing

La, la, la, la, la, la, life rolls on
La, la, la, la, la, la, life rolls on

And we'll be singing
La, la, la, la, la, la, life rolls on
La, la, la, la, la, la, life rolls on

Yeah life rolls on
Life rolls on
Yeah life rolls on

I don't know, but I've been told
If you ain't busy livin', then you're getting old
That always seemed to make good sense to me

Song facts

"'Life Rolls On' was Jimi's idea, and it kind of sums up his life philosophy. He's really big about living in the moment and experiencing it fully. So it wasn't shocking to me when he came up with that melody and that chorus. We threw that one in our live show really quickly when we wrote it, and the fans connected with the song's attitude and spirit right off the bat." - Karen Fairchild
