Well the road I see before me
Threatens pain at every bend, yeah
Well my needs are mine, I understand
And hope to calling friends
Well, good company, it may comfort me
But I don't want love to distract my heart from the way

Now your love it gave me sorrow
And a broken heart to mend, yeah
So I took me to this lonely road
My sweet hopes, to defend
Oh and why pretend, I won't look back
Even though the love of a happy man waits before

Well, the winter wind blows chilly
And the road is dark and gray
So take pity on a wanderer should you pass me on the way

Oh, I'm left alone without a home
Makes a man ask why he travels on
When hope is gone

It's a long road
It's a long road
It's a long road
It's a long road
