High Road

by Brett Matthew West

High Road

I killed a man in Dallas
In the land of the dollar bill
Now I'm hunted like a mad dog
And I know they always will
Until the day they find me
And they bring me down
There'll be a black car waiting
and in daddy's tears I'll drown

"Always take the high road
It's the way you want to go"
That's what my daddy told me
Why I never listened I don't know
Hard times will fall around you
And your friends will fade away
Always take the high road
It'll see you through another day

Daddy always wanted
Us to have a good name
Now we're the gossip of the county
And I'm the one to blame
Words of wisdom that he told me
They seemed to ring so true
But I would not hear him
And I broke his heart in two

"Always take the high road
Its the way you want to go"
That's what my daddy told me
Why I never listened I don't know
Hard times will fall around you
And friends will fade away
Always take the high road
It'll see you through another day

The preacher's got his Good Book
and they've come to lay me down
I know my life is over
Time for me won't be found
I can see my daddy crying
And his tears have just begun
How can I even face him
After all that I have done

"Always take the high road
It's the way you want to go"
That's what my daddy told me
Why I never listened I don't know
Hard times will fall around you
And friends will fade away
Always take the high road
It'll see you through another day

(SPOKEN): Listen to me, son

(TAG):

Always take the high road
it'll see you through another day

Yesterday I attended an Old West-themed festival here in Nashville.

These County Music song lyrics were inspired by that event.

Definitely a lesson too late for the learning.
