There's a Rugged Road (Remastered) Lyrics

There's A Rugged Road - Judee Sill

 

There's a rugged road on the prairie

 

Stretchin' all across the last frontier

 

There a stranger strives solitary

 

Blessed is the lonesome pioneer

 

Roll on roll on roll on

Night birds are flyin'

Come on the light is gone

Hope's slowly dyin'

Tell me how you come ridin' through

Still surveyin' the miles yet to run

On the long and lonely road to kingdom come

 

He can blaze a trail though the rumblin'

Dims his guiding light to just a spark

 

When the hour is low he comes tumblin'

When the moon is high he gives his heart

 

Roll on roll on roll on

Night birds are flyin'

Come on the light is gone

Hope's slowly dyin'

Tell me how you come ridin' through

Gainin' steady till this round is won

On the long and lonely road to kingdom come

 

People far below chasin' pleasures

 

Offer him directions on the run

 

Prophets on the path offer treasures

 

Though she's mighty hungry he takes none

 

Roll on roll on roll on

Night birds are flyin'

Come on the light is gone

Hope's slowly dyin'

Tell me how you come ridin' through

Blindly faithful but followin' none

On the long & lonely road to kingdom come

 

When the sun goes down at the right time

 

She comes windin' through the purple haze

Just a feather's touch in the night time

 

But it'll color all my weary days

 

Shinin' finer than this earthly sun

On the ragged rugged road to kingdom come

 

On the ragged rugged road to kingdom come
