A Ways To Go Lyrics

(Lainie Marsh)

I hear the clock a tickin'
See the sweat upon my brow
I know my destination
Nothing's gonna stop me now.

I'm running on desire, baby
I got nerves of steel
Coming down to the wire
Lord above me guide the wheel.

Keep me in your prayers tonight
I'll be weary opon that road
I know the finish line's in sight
But I still have ways to go.

There's a junkyard dog a barkin'
In the valley down below
He's wantin' me to stop
And gather up a heavy load.

Ain't gonna heed his call
Ain't giving him the time of day
You mangy mutt once and for all
I said I threw that stuff away.

Keep me in your prayers tonight
I'll be weary opon that road
I know the finish line's in sight
But I still have ways to go.

I won't have a bit of trouble
Heading down the straight and true
I fly solo on the double
Into the yonder blue.

I might need some intervention
Out upon the icy turn
In a foggy situation
Squeallin' on a hairpin curve.

I'm running on desire, baby
I got nerves of steel
Coming down to the wire
Lord above me guide the wheel.

Keep me in your prayers tonight
I'll be weary opon that road
I know the finish line's in sight
But I still have ways to go.

Got a ways to go.
Got a ways to go.
Got a ways to go...
