Diamond Highway

05:07

Lyrics

 

I’m goin down this diamond highway

I’m goin down this diamond road

And when I get to where I’m goin

I’ll live forever with a diamond soul

I’ll live forever with a diamond soul

 

It’s been said that we might seek money

It’s been said that we might seek gold

But the diamond highway goes on forever

and a diamond fortune is the lightest load

and a diamond fortune is the lightest load

 

I’m headed for Murfreesboro

Way down in Arkansas

There I’ll find me a stone so heavy

It will buy me all the time I need

It will buy me all the time I need

 

I’ll keep walking until my legs ache

I’ll keep walking until my feet hurt

But I won’t weary of the diamond highway,

ain’t no better road on this earth

ain’t no better road on this earth

 

When life is easy and you risk nothing

There is no meaning to what you do

So put on your tall boots and your headlamp

grab your shovel and pick-axe too

grab your shovel and pick-axe too

 

 There ain’t no sinners on the diamond highway

There ain’t no judgement from up above

But the road gets longer and the trip gets weary

when you’re missing all the ones you love

when you’re missing all the ones you love

 

(From the album Seven Years Now)
