Road Rise Up

 

Come on Darlin now don't be sad

(don't be sad)

You know things just ain't so bad

(ain't so bad)

The better angels of your nature

Will rush to help when hope has failed you

when the darkness deepens and you're far away

you're not lost but wandering

and every road you take will lead you home

 

may the road rise up to meet you

each hand be a friend

may the road rise up to meet you

and even though the journeys long

may each step bring you close to home again

 

Angel sitting on my shoulder tells me that

(ain't so bad)

there'll come another chance to hold you

(don't be sad)

the light that's hidden in your eyes

will shine like gold when fortune smiles

when the evening closes and you're far way

I know that tomorrow brings

another road that homeward leads you now

 

may the road rise up to meet you

each hand be a friend

may the road rise up to meet you

and even though the journeys long

may each step bring you close to home

may the road rise up to meet you

each hand be a friend

may the road rise up to meet you

and even though the journeys long

may each step bring you close to home again
