A THOUSAND MORE TO GO

Verse 1

Grace of her mother and her father’s charm

Face so beautiful it breaks your heart

Circles in my mind over where we’ve been 

It’s a long walk back to start again

 

Verse 2

Gave away her 20s and her family name

To a good looking liar with an eye that strayed

Nothing whispers in her ear but the howling wind

It’s a long walk back to start again

It’s a long walk back to start again

 

Chorus

Oh what keeps my feet a walking?

Oh it takes a lot to know

I will carry myself to the open road a calling

One mile gone, a thousand more to go

 

Verse 3

He bows his head with a weathered sigh

Fifty years together just to say goodbye

No one in the places where she had been

It’s a long walk back to start again

It’s a long walk back to start again

 

Chorus

Oh what keeps my feet a walking?

Oh it takes a lot to know

I will carry myself to the open road a calling

One mile gone, a thousand more to go
