Down The Road Lyrics

On the blue side of evenin'
When the darkness takes control
You start lookin' for a reason
To take your lonesome - on down the road

Though the miles - lay long behind you
You have still - got miles to go
How's love ever gonna find you
If it ain't here - it's down the road?

'Cause the night - is filled with strangers
All you need - is one you know
If she ain't - the one you're after
Keep on lookin' - on down the road

Though the miles - lay long behind you
You have still - got miles to go
How's love ever gonna find you
If it ain't here - it's down the road?

Though the miles - lay long behind you
You have still - got miles to go
How's love ever gonna find you
If it ain't here - it's down the road?

On the blue side of evenin'
When the darkness takes control
You start lookin' for a reason
To take your lonesome - on down the road

Though the miles - lay long behind you
You have still - got miles to go
How's love ever gonna find you
If it ain't here - it's down the road?

To take your lonesome - on down the road
To take your lonesome - on down the road To take your lonesome - on down the road
