Life’s Just A Long And Lonely Road        

By: Cees Veerman

 I Was Talking With An Old Man
He Was Almost Seventy-Five
He Told Me The Story Of His Life
With A Tear In His Eyes

  He Said:  “Son, It’s Hard To Know
I’ve Got A Few More Years To Go
But It Still Hurts Me More
Knowing That I’ve Been Wasting My Time

  Life’s Just A Long Lonely Road
That You Have To Go
With A Heavy Load On Your Shoulder
Someone Can Carry It All
Somebody Stumbles And Falls
When He Stands Up He Feels So Much Older

  And When You’re Happy Once In A While
Spend These Moments With A Smile
‘Cause Life’s Just A Glass Of Wine You See
You’ve Got To Drink It For Free

 
‘Cause You’ll Be Dead And Gone
Before You Know You Were Born

  Life’s Just A Long Lonely Road
That You Have To Go
With A Heavy Load On Your Shoulder
Someone Can Carry It All
Somebody Stumbles And Falls
When He Stands Up He Feels So Much Older

  ‘Cause You’ll Be Dead And Gone
Before You Know You Were Born
Before You Know You Were Born
And You’ll Be Dead And Gone
Before You Know You Were Born
