“Goin’ down the Road”

Pork and beans, and coffee
Front seat motel bed...
Driving hard since Tulsa,
With no relief ahead.
I ride tonight in Vegas-
From there it’s Santa Fe-
Seems nothing on my schedule
Is ever “on the way”.

Chorus:
I guess that’s why they call this life
“Going down the road”-
For every flashy ride I make-
There’s three times I get throwed.
Sixty thousand miles last year-
A sleepin’ as I drove-
I guess that’s why they call this life
“Goin’ down the road”.

I don’t see much of wife or kids-
And things aren’t going good,
I never make their birthdays...
The way I know I should...
I forgot our anniversary-
And, oh, the fit she throwed-
I fear some day I’ll see her-
As she's “Goin’ down the road”.

Life and things we do often get in the way of more important things, dare I say...but knowing what should be done, and trying even harder to do them can only make things better. Good message in this...
