October Road Lyrics

Well I'm-a going back down maybe one more time
Deep down home - October road
And I might like to see that little friend of mine
That I left behind - once upon a time
Oh promised land and me still standing
It's a test of time - it's a real good sign

Let the sun run down behind the hill I know
How to stand there still till the moon rise up Behind the pine
Oh Lord - October road
October Road ------------October Road

It's the big-time life that I can't abide - raise my rent - tan my hide
Sweet call of the countryside - go down slow - open wide
I did my time - and it changed my mind - I'm satisfied – oh

I got so low down fed up - my God I could hardly move
Won't you come on my brother get on up and help me find my groove
Keep me walking, October road

Keep me walking in the sunshine yeah
A little friend of mine
October road -------- Help me now
October Road
Ohhhhhhhh - October Road
