ChorusIt's sEnoCwin' AonF RaEtoCn, come mB7ornG7ing, I'll be tAhrFough them hills and EgoCne. Oh Mother thinks the road is long and lonely, Little brother thinks the road is straight and fine, Well little darling thinks the road is soft and lovely, I'm thankful that old road's a friend of mine.
ChorusAh, bid the years good-bye, you cannot still them, Well you cannot turn the circles of the sun, Well you cannot count the miles until you feel them, And you cannot hold a lover that is gone.
ChorusWell, tomorrow the mountains will be sleeping Silent beneath a blanket green and blue Ah but I shall hear the silence they are keeping I'll bring all their promises to you. CHORUS repeat three times
