†††††† †††LIFE'S ROAD†††††††††††† (C)J.BIRCH 1997.

†††††††††

 

††††††††† The sun comes up in the morning

††††††††† The moon comes out at night

††††††††† Ev'ry day we get older

††††††††† But the wind still blows the kite

 

††††††††† We go to work for the money

††† ††††††But we just dont justify

††††††††† When the things we wanted mostly

††††††††† Are the things we can not buy

 

††††††††† Woh-oh-oh

††††††††† Gunna buy me a chevy

††††††††† And drive it till its dry

††††††††† Gunna buy me a kite and fly it

††††††††† Way over the southern sky

 

††††††††† Gunna find me someone

††††††††† Gunna love me someone

††††††††† Gunna pull this heavy load

††††††††† Way down , LIFE'S ROAD

 

††††††††† ----------------------------------------

 

††††††††† Well life can be real easy

††††††† ††It can be real cool

††††††††† If you're doin' what you want to

††††††††† Did you learn that in school

 

††††††††† Well you can work for the money

††††††††† But you'll find that it wont buy

††††††††† All the things you wanted

††††††††† Infact it can make you cry

 

††††††††† --------(repeat chorus)--------

 

††††††††† ---------(Music)---------

 

††††††††† When the white line is a runnin'

††††††††† And the diesel is a hummin'

††††††††† You'll find this cowboy thumbin'

††††††††† Way down , LIFE'S ROAD

 

†††††††† MUSIC to bridge

 

††††††††† Repeat Chorus
