Down lifes highway, all alone I've trod, I always put my trust in god. But you'll find out, that your silver and gold, won't pay the price to protect your soul. (chorus) (Oh I want the lord to protect my soul, to lead me on to the heavens home. My life down here will soon be oer and i want the lord to protect my soul). (chorus) There's many a church down lifes highway, where the people sing , rejoice and pray. Why don't you stop at one and join the foll and ask the lord to protect your soul. (chorus) When this old world is doomed in sin you'll cry oh lord please let me in but it'll be to late to make your goal so ask the lord to protect your soul.
