The Way Of The Road

For Bob Dylan

I’m sitting in this diner with thoughts of what was
I’m thinking of leaving but I don’t because
I hear the jukebox reload
I guess all I can say is that’s the way of the road

Don’t know where I’m going don’t know where I’ve been
I’m out here waiting for my life to begin
Free from this heavy load
I guess all I can say is that’s the way of the road
I guess all I can say is that’s the way of the road

This broken old voice and the words it sings
These tired fingers on silver strings
Every song a seed we sowed
I guess all I can say is that’s the way of the road

They say that we’re dying and it’s probably true
It’s all that you’ve known what else can you do
You lived your whole life by the code
I guess all I can say is that’s the way of the road
I guess all I can say is that’s the way of the road

I heard from the devil I heard from the lord
I learned from ‘em both the rest I ignored
You can lose your soul to overload
I guess all I can say is that’s the way of the road

Girl can you tell me why I do what I do
No man in his right mind would ever leave you
And all the love you showed
I guess all I can say is that’s the way of the road
I guess all I can say is that’s the way of the road
