lyrics

Straight ahead the road keeps winding
Narrow, wet and dimly lit
Vainly looking for a crossroad
Where a weary soul can sit

Lost and needing some direction
Dodging ruts along the way
Bumpy road, confuse a body
Lead a trusting soul astray

For some this road is smooth and easy
Travelin’ high without a care
But if ya got to use the back roads
Straight ahead can lead nowhere

On this road you got a problem
Getting where you want to go
Speed limits almost down to nothing
Straight ahead but oh so slow
