Emmylou Harris Lyrics

The Road by Emmylou Harris


[Verse 1:]
I can still remember every song you played
Long ago when we were younger and we rocked the night away
How could I see a future then, where you would not grow old?
Such fire in our belly, such a hunger in souls
I guess I've grown to love you in those words so often tired
Seen that we were traveling under some old lucky sign
I know I didn't say it then and no one was to blame
But the road we shared together once will never be the same

[Chorus:]
Hey all along the way
Won't be coming round again
Hey was a song I played
And on the wings of a song
I'll fly away

[Verse 2:]
I wondered in the wilderness for a while I was so lost
To everything there is a season and every blessing has it's cost
So I took what you left to me and put it to some use
When looking for an answer with those three chords and the truth
I come down from the mountain I come walking in your shoes
I was taken for a glambler when I had no more to loose
For he put me on that path and how could I refuse
And I would spend my whole life out here working on the blues
Hey... Ay Hey. Hey. Ay. Hey. Heeeeeeeeey
So I carried on, you can't be haunted by the past
People come people, go and nothing ever lasts
But I still think about you wonder where you are
Can you see me from some place up there among the stars?
But down here under heaven there never was a chart
To guide our way across this crooked highway of the (part?)
And if it's only all about the journey in the end
On that road I'm glad I came to know my old friend

[Chorus]
Hey all along the way
Won't be coming round again
Hey was a song I played
And on the wings of a song
I'll fly away[x2]
