John

Music by Rob de Weerd & lyrics by Rob de Weerd and Emilie Blom

John, how are you today is life on the road still okay
John how does it feel have you still got your hands on the wheel
are you still going strong for days on end
is the road still your best friend

Out on that long long road
on your highway to the sun
out in that deep dark night
carry on John

John can you recall the days you weren’t on the run
John, remember the times we laughed so hard we cried
but now you have to drive for days on end
you think the road is your friend

Out on that long long road
on your highway to the sun
out in that deep dark night
you’re strong John you’re strong

out on the long long road
where your mind begins to wander

You love her so much it’s aching inside
you miss her sweet kisses and her arms open wide
try to hang on John
did you ever notice that the road has no end
there’s no end to the end and its pointless and meaningless
to carry that heavy load

John I saw your wife as she walked out the door
she didn’t carry much more than a backpack and a knife
in her hand a cardboard sign I couldn’t read
her pretty face covered in tears

Out on that long long road
on your highway to the sun
out in the deep dark night
Carry on John, carry on, you’re strong
