Rocky Road

The Giving Tree Band - The Joke, The Threat, & The Obvious

Featured on:

My old man he’s just like me

Got a sense of dignity

Believes a man has a right to dream 

Along this rocky road

 

He grew up in a flannel shirt

And he could hold his breathe ‘til it almost hurt

He paved his way ‘til it turned to dirt

Along this rocky road

 

Now the sale is on but the sale won’t sell

And the car won’t start ‘cause it’s cold as hell

Your ship came in but you can’t tell

Along this rocky road

 

And I wouldn’t mind to see your face

And I wouldn’t mind to state my case

‘Cause my own thoughts they won’t let me be

So I guess we better make our way

‘Cause you won’t leave and I can’t stand to stay away

 

Well the big man he loves to make small talk

It hits you like an electric shock

And you stumble on down like a stumbling block

Along this rocky road

 

And the other guy, they say he’s all talk

Like a rooster he was just born to squawk

And I wanna roll and not just walk

Along this rocky road

 

I wouldn’t mind to see your face

And I wouldn’t mind to state my case

Cause my own thoughts they won’t ever let me be

I guess we better make our way

Cause you won’t leave and I can’t stand to stay gone
