LONELY ROAD
by Mark Heard
from the album Dry Bones Dance
Submitted by Joel Lurvey  jlurvey@pillsbury.mpls.k12.mn.us

 Am                    Em
Not taking note of the fools or the wise 
 Am                      D
Being a pawn of time and chance 
 Am                       Em
Not making vows when the flood waters rise 
 F               Em                 Am
Is simpler than nails through your hands 

Being a slave to the sultans of grief 
Keeping the hand to the plow 
Being held captive to public belief 
Is easier than thorns through your brow 

            D G    Am
And it’s a lonely road 
            D G    Am
And it’s a lonely road 
            D G    Am
And it’s a lonely road 
          Em
That the Son of Man walks down 

Being immune to the war of the heart 
And never wondering why 
To bury the conflict deep in the dark 
Is safer than spears through your side 

And it’s a lonely road 
And it’s a lonely road 
And it’s a lonely road 
That the Son of Man walks down 

For him who burns with a creed and a flame 
Words are as smoke on the wind 
Some kind of volatile helplessness reigns 
And can’t fill the hearts of his kin 

To go and enlighten the doomed and unwashed 
Seized with the art of sacrifice 
To carry the weight of a martyr-at-large 
Is easier than giving your life 

And it’s a lonely road 
And it’s a lonely road 
And it’s a lonely road 
That the Son of Man walks down
