i’m leavin’ town at midnight.
i think i’ll take the highway to tomorrow.
if my car won’t get me there
then maybe my two tired feet will.
i wanna see the sun come up at daybreak, castin’ a shadow on my past.
two buck cappucinos’ll keep me rollin’
and two cents worth of crazy to foot the bill.
i wanna watch someone i feared
become a brother and a friend.
i wanna talk to my angels and let them
lead me ’round the bend.
so precious lord take my hand.
lead me on. let me stand.
i am tired, i am weak, i am worn.
through the storm and through the fight
lead me on through the night
precious lord take my hand and lead me on.
now every road’s gotta lead to somewhere, they take us from the cradle to the grave.
it’s always a gamble where you end up
but i intend to play ’til i win.
i may just find another road to heartache
but find some new players for the band,
or just another batch of same ole same ole washed down with a tonic and a good gin.
well it’s the lovin’ that makes the journey
can turn a dirt road into bein’ paved.
but that same lovin’ has led me to lonely
and now it’s my heart that i’m tryin’ to save…
so precious lord….
