Lyrics
50 Year Road Kristjan / CopperDogMusic / 2001

Walking heavy down that 50 Year Road
No one to help me carry my load
Can't hitch a ride, No I can't hop a train
Can't see the sunshine and I can't stop this rain
A flash caddy like to pass me by
Won't be my ride, til the day I die
Still I keep on moving, I can't slow down
Only 20 miles to the next town

On step, another, moving ahead
Stop moving you might as well be dead

My brother BoBo well he's such a clown
Pick me upright when I'm feeling down
Make no mistake, he knows how I feel
Makes me laugh, then he makes me a meal
He say " Don't let life pass you by
Live your life until the day you die "

Well one step another moving ahead
Stop moving might as well be dead

spoken: Think I'll get on down to that Brown Dirt Vacation Farm
and have a little siesta in the ClubHouse

I'm walking heavy down that 50 year road
No one to help me carry my load
Can't hitch a ride, No I can't hop a train
Can't see the sunshine and I can't stop this rain
A flash caddy like to pass me by
Won't be my ride, til the day I die
Still I keep on moving, I can't slow down
Only 20 miles to that Marquis town

One step another keep on moving ahead
Stop moving, might as well be dead
