When I set out, this was just a track
Now it's a rocky road
I left so fast I didn't even pack
I just hit this rocky road
The flint and shell is cold and cruel
On this rocky road
But it sparks and spikes like an over-rule
Walking this rocky road
Yeah walk this rocky road

It began one morning when I woke reborn
Walk this rocky road
Felt like the chains that bound me from me had been torn
Walk this rocky road
The rut I was in had once been a groove
Walk this rocky road
I said to my feet "c'mon feet, time to move"
And we hit this rocky road
Yeah hit this rocky road

And the way may be pitted and the climb steep
And the mountains soaring and the valleys deep
But I'm driven by a memory of way-back-when
That says I'm never going back again

When I first started out, this was just a track
Now it's a rocky road
Fixed my eyes face-forward and I didn't look back
I just hit this rocky road
There's a thumping and a jumping from a thunderstorm
On this rocky road
But I keep on walking 'till I make it home
I'm gonna walk this rocky road
Yeah walk this rocky road

And the way may be pitted and the climb steep
And the mountains soaring and the valleys deep
But I'm driven by a memory of way-back-when
That says I'm never going back again

I'm gonna walk this rocky road, I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk this rocky road, I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk this rocky road, I'm gonna walk
I'm gonna walk this rocky road, I'm gonna walk
I'm going to walk this rocky road
