That Lonesome Road

That Lonesome Road
(Don Grolnick, James Taylor)

Walk down that lonesome road all by yourself.
Don't turn your head back over your shoulder,
And only stop to rest yourself when the silver moon
Is shining high above the trees.

If I had stopped to listen once or twice,
If I had closed my mouth and opened my eyes,
If I had cooled my head and warmed my heart,
I'd not be on this road tonight.

Carry on.
Never mind feeling sorry for yourself.
It doesn't save you from your troubled mind.

(Repeat first verse.)

Sung by James Taylor on "Dad Loves His Work," 1981,
and by the King's Singers on "Good Vibrations," 1993
