Slaughter - Yesterday's Gone Lyrics

Jesse works till midnight in nowhere USA
Pumping gas checking oil on a lonely interstate
Walking down the highway, he looks up to the sky
And he asks Dear Lord how will I make it by?
You know he didn't have a nickel to his name
Although he had a one way ticket just the same
Yes, you know it's true, it's time to
leave those things behind you.
Treat everyday like Yesterday's Gone
Treat everyday like Yesterday's Gone
Ah move along, Yesterday's Gone
Yesterday is Gone, gone, gone, baby
it's far gone
With a bag thrown over his shoulder
Jesse had to hitch a ride
All his friends said he's crazy, you'll
never get to the other side
With a hope and a dream and a
promise, that's really all he had
But he don't care
Ain't nothing gonna turn out that bad
You know he didn't have a nickel to his name
Although he had a one way ticket just the same
Yes you know it's true, it's time to
leave those things behind you
[Repeat Chorus]
Yea ain't that right boys - C'mon hit it
Many times I've wondered where Jesse is today
Is he on top of the world or knockin' at heaven's gate
The one thing I remember as I look up to the sky
Was the look on his face as he waved goodbye
He said Yesterday's Gone
Yesterday's Gone...

  9. Chizack Dee

    This song inspired me to name my first son "Jesse" in the 90's. I had forgotten this song completely. Jesse died in 2009 from leukemia. I haven't thought of my son in some time. This song came on completely by accident. I cried. Thank you for the ever lasting memories Mark Slaughter. This song will forever mean the world to me.

    You know he didn't have a nickel to his name 
    Although he had a one way ticket just the same 
    Yes, you know it's true, it's time to 
    leave those things behind you,
    Yehaa con un boleto de ida pero no de regreso¡¡¡.

    Makes me think of Tim.

  15. Gage

    While you'll be glad to know, I'm 14, I'm a 90's kid, and i LOVE 80's rock. You can thank my dad for that, he brought me up listening to this stuff, and im damn proud of it, i love him so much fro that, if he hadnt i wouldve been just another brainwashed fool, listening to...well the shit u just described haha. Theres not very many of us, but trust me, there are still kids with some sense in music out there, just gotta look hard enough :)
