Mother Road

Concert 1997

Album Dust and Dreams

 

Mother Road
You’ve made your decision to leave
there’s no turning ’round.
Now that you’ve got a reprieve,
you must stand your ground.
Some of the others are weak,
so you must be strong
155 won’t last very long…
Ma, will we make out,
do you think that this old car
will last?
Pa, is there some doubt,
if our bad luck will
stay in the past?
Well I’m hoping it’s so,
but you can’t really know til the end.
They tell me that all things must change
but they begin again.
Listen to the motor and the road
and how does it feel?
Listen with your ears and your hands
on the steering wheel.
Ma, will we make out,
do you think that this old car will last?
Pa, is there some doubt,
if our bad luck will stay in the past?
Listen now boys,
what your ma has told you
there is no way we can tell…
We’ve got to face this road together
and have some faith
in ourselves.
Ma, will we make out,
do you think that this old car will last?
Pa, is there some doubt,
if our bad luck will
stay in the past?
Ma,
Will we make out…?
