Crooked Road

I walk a crooked road, it leads me to tomorrow
Through all my joy and sorrow I walk a crooked road
I take the things I need and I leave the rest behind me
I use my heart to guide me as I walk a crooked road

When I go to work I work the fields of summer
To take me through the winter when I go to work
And when I take my rest my family's there beside me
Their love runs deep inside me when I go to work

When I kneel to pray for my father and mother
My sister and my brother when I kneel to pray
I pray for my heart that it's beatin' strong inside me
That its always there to guide me when I kneel to pray

And when I sing my song I sing of good times and grievin'
And the things that I believe in when I sing my song
My story's much the same as the life that we're all livin'
In the time that we've been given when I sing my song

And when I say goodbye I'll take your memory with me
And you can sing this melody when I say goodbye
When a new face comes along you can seat him where you seat me
You can treat him like you treat me when I say goodbye

I walk a crooked road, it leads me to tomorrow
Through all my joy and sorrow I walk a crooked road
I take the things I need and I leave the rest behind me
I use my heart to guide me as I walk a crooked road
