Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[Chorus]
Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
I shall walk

[Verse 1]
The trail is dusty
And my road it might be rough
But the better roads are waiting
And boys it ain’t far off

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
I walked down by the river
I turned my head up high
I saw that silver linin’
That was hanging in the sky

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
The evening dusk was rolling
I was walking down the track
There was a one-way wind a-blowin’
And it was blowin’ at my back

[Chorus]

[Verse 4]
The gravel road is bumpy
It’s a hard road to ride
But there’s a clearer road a-waitin’
With the cinders on the side

[Chorus]

[Verse 5]
That evening train was rolling
The humming of its wheels
My eyes they saw a better day
As I looked across the fields

[Chorus]

[Verse 6]
The trail is dusty
The road it might be rough
But the good road is a-waiting
And boys it ain’t far off

[Chorus]
