Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – Let It Roll lyrics

The other night as I was driving
Up the highway through the past
I was torn betwwen the future
And the memories of the past

Fell in love for the wrong reasons
Gave our hearts then lost control
So I eased it up past sixty
Turn away and let it roll

We had the plan to stay together
You with your dreams me with mine
With the promess of forever
We would stand the test of time

Like the hot winds come in summer
Trouble waited at the door
Time to leave this all behind me
Turn away and let it roll

Let it roll the way these heart aches
Let it roll away theses fears
Let it roll away the reasons
We've been crying all these years

Every mile that comes between us
There's a cleansing in my soul
Throw away the rear view mirror
Adios and let it roll

Now everybody takes their chances
Everybody has to choose
But when love hangs in the balance
There's an innocence you lose

I don't know what lies before me
But I'm sure I have to go
Feel the tears slowly descending
It's my last so let it roll

Time to leave this all behind me
Adios and let it go
