lyrics

River Road

On that river road, a long time ago
Riding a motorcycle alone
That hippie chick had really messed up my head
I was feeling like I shoulda been dead
On that river road is when it all came to me

The T-shirt I was wearing was a little bit torn
and I was feeling down and forlorn
That's when I could see
I had to get away to be free
On that river road is when it all came to me

Goodby Mama and goodby Pa
That motorcycle just wouldn't stop
I ended up on empty till I found my way

Now it's many years from that day
and I'm still traving on my way
Traded that motorcycle for a car
Had a kid, which ain't too hard
on that river road I guess I never got too far

Goodby wife and goodby son
Now your daddy is on the run
this time I don't know what I'll do when I'm done

On that river road, a long time ago
Riding a motorcycle alone
On that river road is when it all came to me
