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
Gainin' steady till this round is won
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
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
