Long Rocky Road


This road is long and road is long and rocky 
Like others Ive been on 
At times its paved with silver and gold 
And sometimes its a muddy mess 
But whether its smooth or rocky 
The Lord knows Ive done my best 
I chose good and some were bad 
But where my choices lead me 
Have gotten me where I am 
I have paid the price in honkytonks and bars across the land 
Ive thrown my share of punches 
Been knocked down on my can 
Taken my chances at cards and dice 
And fooled around at love 
Some girls I chose to get rid of 
And some of I never got enough 
I walked in the face of cold dark wind 
And came out on the sunny side 
I swam across rivers to beat the tide 
Im another man taking another stand 
Waiting for my time 
And when my time is over one thing I know is true 
Life's been fun even if this road 
Took a bite out of my youth
