NIGHTWATCHMAN


The Road I Must Travel Lyrics

Well, I climbed the seven summits and I swam the seven seas
But the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see
Well, I fought in the jungles and I fought in the streets
But the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see

Now, once I had a reason, don't know what it could be
And the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see
Well, I sang to myself that I want to be free
But the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see

I walked the empty desert and I was burned in the heat
But the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see
Well, I crossed the frozen wasteland in the bitter cold did freeze
And the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see

And I will knock on every door for I do not have a key
And the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see
Well, I sang to myself that I want to be free
But the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see

They shot a man in Soho, couldn't guess his age
I found his empty journal, I filled up every page
I called up my state Senator, they said he wasn't there
The secretary took my name and, man, she sounded scared

So I counted my misfortunes, I added up the blame
I picked through all the garbage, I checked off all the names
I read in the newspaper, they'd questioned all my friends
They hoped that they could find my ass before I struck again

So I sang to myself that I want to be free
But the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see
So when thirsty I will drink and when hungry I will steal
But the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see

So tonight I walk in anger with worn shoes on my feet
And the road I must travel, it's end I cannot see
And I will sing to myself that I'm gonna be free
But the road I must travel, yeah, it's end I cannot see

There's a sign along the highway but it's too dark now to read
