Lyrics

The Road Leads Home

Written By: John Scooch Cugno

How many times did I drive the 84?
A thousand times and a hundred more-
The road to ruin-sometimes I thought,
All those relations-where they all for naught?
Yeah it"s been a long road,
now the road lead home.

Drivin' to those places at such a cost-
not thinkin' o' the love I mightta lost.
Abba father is what I seek- A newborn winner that quit gettin' beat!
Now I'm on a brand new road-
and the road lead home.

Yeah the road leads home-
It's been a long long road.
Yeah the road leads home-
never more to roam.
Now my new navigator-
show the road leads home

I shouldda made the switch a long time ago.
It costs to be the boss and keep your ego in tow.
I'm drivin' up front and it finally feels so right,
My eye's on the prize and my goal's in sight.

solos

Yeah the road leads home
It's been a long long road
Yeah the road leads home-
never more to roam.
Now my new navigator-
shows the road leads home.
