Lyrics

Lonely Road (David Francey, © Laker Music)

Sun comes up, and the sun goes down
Sky and prairie and another town
The broken line’s a stuttered code
No sign ahead, just the lonely road

Headlights in the skewed rear view
A thousand miles or more from you
Where the eighteen-wheelers haul their loads
No sign ahead, just the lonely road

Streets of heaven are paved with gold
And the road to hell is paved with souls
Someone loves me, this I know Somewhere down the lonely road

The dark of night, the headlights shine
Reminders of what’s left behind
The wipers sweep, the taillights glow
No sign ahead, just the lonely road

Me, I just have home in mind
What's hard ahead gets left behind
North of 7 it's rock and snow
And a gravel right on a lonely road

Streets of heaven are paved with gold
And the road to hell is paved with souls
Someone loves me, this I know Somewhere down the lonely road
Streets of heaven are paved with gold And the road to hell is paved with souls
Someone loves me, this I know Somewhere down the lonely road
