Time to get back on the road
Gonna leave these troubles behind
Time to carry the load
What my life is a true design
You won't reach me by phone
I'll be moving round between the line
Time to get back on the road
Gonna mend this heart of mine

Don't you cry, when I say goodbye
Baby, baby, carry on
Don't you cry, when I say goodbye
Cause baby, you're not alone

The love that we shared was grand,
But not enough to keep me still
I hope someday you understand
Music gives my heart, a thrill

Don't you cry, when I say goodbye
Baby, baby, carry on
Don't you cry, when I say goodbye
Cause, baby, you're not alone

Since the day that my life began
A band has been my true life plan
Time to get back on the road
Feel the music, take the stand
You are my true love,
Still there will be no one, to take your place
This feeling, I can't erase.
Got to move and have my space

Don't you cry, when I say goodbye
Baby, baby, carry on
Don't you cry, when I say goodbye
Cause, baby, you're not alone
