Lyrics

Road To Hope

Heading out to California
Driving down this Interstate
I'll make Texas by the morning
If I do not hesitate

She left not really knowing
The way I truly feel
Now I have to find her
And prove my love is real

(Chorus)
There's a cold,cold wind a blowing
Across these plains tonight
Down this road to hope I'm going
Too try to make everything alright

(Lead Break)

I see the lights of Amarillo
Soon I'll make New Mexico
Trying hard to catch her memory
Listen to these big wheels roll

She said a real man's what I'm needing
Games have no place in my mind
She wants a family and a future
So she left me here behind

(2nd Chorus)

That cold wind is still blowing
Across these plains tonight
Down this road to hope I'm going
Too try to make everything alright

Heading out to California
Driving down this interstate
I'll make Needles by the morning
If I do not hesitate.
