Long, Long Road

Long, Long Road

 

Sitting playing tunes on this battered old guitar

Feeling melancholy, feeling blue.

The road of life is long I’ve travelled so far

Things I’ve seen have changed my point of view.

 

When I started on the road such an angry young man

Thought I knew it all thought I could change the world

But the road it twists and turns and things never go to plan

Seems the more I tried the more it hurt.

 

It's a long long road that we all travel down

It’s a heavy weight we all carry round

All the burdens of your past, all the wrong you've done

Keeps you going keeps you on the run.

 

Now I’ve walked the road a while and I’m longer in the tooth

I know experience is just mistakes I’ve made

I know I’m wiser for the road and the truth is still the truth

And you’re better in the light than in the shade,

 

It's a long long road that we all travel down

It’s a heavy weight we all carry round

All the burdens of your past, all the wrong you've done

Keeps you going keeps you on the run.

 

And what worries me the most is come my journeys end

When I stand before my maker eye to eye

If I can't say to him I cornered every bend

If I can't say to him oh sweet lord I tried.

 

It's a long long road that we all travel down

It’s a heavy weight we all carry round

All the burdens of your past, all the wrong you've done

Keeps you going keeps you on the run.
