"SHOULDER TO THE BOULDER"

Chorus 1
Put your shoulder to the boulder,
With faith, you know, it's ready to roll.
Don't let that flame start to smoulder,
Unstoppable force is gonna soon take control.

Verse 1
In generations gone before ya
Pioneers in California
Saw beyond the rugged terrain,
The cities and the towers,
The potential and the power,
With brave belief their world they could change.
They left the comfy nest
And headed out west,
Following the sun through the sky.
And from their bold decision
Millions built upon their vision
And they left this message for you and I.

Chorus 2
Put your shoulder to the boulder,
With faith, you know, it's ready to roll.
Faith the title deed and you're the holder,
When you give it all your heart and your soul.

Verse 2
Yes, that's the way of pioneers,
Don't pay attention to the sneers
Of those that say it cannot be done.
Have some guts to be brave-hearted
And some umph to get it started,
And soon all that will be on the run.
You've got to feel the call,
Step out and give your all,
Trust that God has got the power to prove.
And once you got it going,
You know there'll be no slowing
The same object they said no one could move.

Repeat Chorus 1

Bridge
You can go anywhere, so aim high.
You can be anyone if you try.
You can do anything, you can fly.
