  1. Diamond Highway

From the recording Diamond Highway

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)
