Been On The Road Too Long




Noel Stookey
1971 Songbirds of Paradise Music

Down in Kansas in 'sixty-four
I was up in the gym to play
I mean to talk while my head took a walk
I did it most every day
Anyway, ninety-eight hundred pairs of eyes
Were waiting for the clown to fall
I began to remember that dark December
and the handwriting on the wall
Don't you know that I've been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too long

I was a bashful boy
I was an only child except for a friend or two
I found out quick that a clever trick
Could make me more friends than you
I came up fast from the country
I was so eager to please you see
I found this rock in a popular role:
"Most Likely Child To Be"
And don't you know that I been on the road too  
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too long

I'm thirty-two now
And my woman had brought me
A child to share
You know the Holiday Inn gets under your skin
When you're not supposed to be there
The good Lord gave me some wisdom
You know I got to put it right
'pack up my case, walk out of this place
And get off the road tonight
Don't you know that I been on road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too long
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too
Been on the road too long
