The Road You Leave Behind

In the style of

David Lee Murphy

Lyrics

i remember the night
my dad
stopped the car
got out in the rain

and changed a
blown-out tire
on a car
for a family with
out-of-state plates

i said dad did we know
those folks
as they waved
and drove
out of sight

he just smiled
as he started the car
he said son
not till tonight

you see the road
you leave behind you
is another road
you're gonna have
to come back down
it's just the way
this big old
world turns 'round

you'll find
somehow somewhere
someplace sometime
you gotta
go back down
the road
you leave behind

stuck out
on a highway
one night
many years gone by

i had the hood
of my truck pulled up
my old
gas tank was dry

some old guy
gettin' off
on the night shift
pulled up
to check on me

he said i been
in your shoes
before son
and it's no place to be

you see the road
you leave behind you
is another road
you're gonna have
to come back down
it's just the way
this big old
world turns 'round

you'll find
somehow somewhere
someplace sometime
you gotta
go back down
the road
you leave behind

i said what do
i owe you friend
you could easily have
passed me by
he said next time
it might be me son
you don't
owe me a dime

you see the road
you leave behind you
is another road
you're gonna have
to come back down
it's just the way
this big old
world turns 'round

you'll find
somehow somewhere
someplace sometime
you gotta
go back down
the road
you leave behind

down the road
you leave behind
the road
you leave behind
is that old road
you leave behind
down the road
you leave behind
