TRANSCRIPT

♪ACCORDION PLAYING

>>RIDIN' DOWN THE HIGHWAY

ON THE ROAD TO

LAFAYETTE

THINKIN 'BOUT MY LIFE,

RE-LIVING MY REGRETS

TIRED OF

TRYING TO FOOL MYSELF, NOBODY TO

BLAME BUT ME.

WHY'D I EVER TURN MY BACK ON WHO

I WAS BORN TO BE?

RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER,

JUST AROUND THE BEND

ALMOST NEXT TO

NOWHERE,

THAT'S WHERE I'VE

ALWAYS BEEN.

HOW'D I LET THINGS GET THIS WAY,

DID LIFE JUST PASS ME BY?

IF I HAD ME A FORTUNE TELLER,

MAYBE SHE COULD TELL ME WHY

WHY I QUIT THE ONLY THING

THAT EVER

MADE ME FEEL WORTHWHILE TO CRAWL

UP UNDER THE COVERS, LIKE A

FRIGHTENED CHILD

RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER,

JUST AROUND THE BEND

I'M ALMOST NEXT TO NOWHERE

I COULD REALLY USE A FRIEND

♪ACCORDION AND GUITAR

AINT NO

POINT IN DWELLING ON THE CHOICES

I HAVE MADE I'M WEARY FROM THE

DREAMIN' AND ALL THE DUES I'VE

PAYED I SEE WHAT'S IN THE

REARVIEW BUT NOT WHAT'S UP AHEAD

BUT I'LL PUT ASIDE MY DOUBTS FOR

NOW, FOUND MY FAITH INSTEAD

RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER,

JUST AROUND THE BEND

I'VE BEEN NEXT

TO NOWHERE

BUT I'M ON MY WAY AGAIN

RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER,

JUST AROUND THE BEND

I'M LEAVING

NEXT TO NOWHERE,

'CAUSE THAT'S

SUCH A BITTER END.

THINK AGAIN.

YES I CAN.

FEEL GOOD AGAIN.
