The Good Road
BY J RANDALL MURPHY

The Good Road was originally written in 1988 and performed live during the late 1980s and mid 1990s when I was heading the underground alternative band 9-DAZE in Calgary Alberta, not to be confused with any current band by the same name.

It is a little more upbeat than Earth Abides or No Time To Run with a country-rock flavor unlike the usual offerings of the genre.

You Can Help Make The Video

For the upcoming video, I'm crowdsourcing video clips and other imagery portraying acts of kindness, bravery, and other positive things. It can be as simple as a photo of a child holding a door for a grandparent, or as complex as a segment from an original dance performance. If you have anything that fits, please get in touch. Your photo or video clip could be in the video!

Lyrics

The Good Road
VERSE I
Take a look down the road you've chosen
Tell me what do you see?
Is this the road you wanna travel?
Will it set you free?
Are you looking for adventure?
Are you looking for a pot of gold?
Or do you just wanna take it easy?
Watch yourself grow old?
CHORUS I
Take the good road
even if it don't look easy
Take the good road
Now don't waste your time
Take the good road
Even if it don't look easy
Take the good road
Now you gotta walk that line
It's a thin one
VERSE II
Now there are people out there
who are lost and lonely
Only ask 'em what they're doin'
They don't know
If someone could take the time
the time to show them
Even they got a way to go
CHORUS II
Take the good road
even if it don't look easy
Take the good road
Now don't waste your time
Take the good road
Even if it don't look easy
Take the good road
Now you gotta walk that line
It's a thin one
Kinda like a state of mind
VERSE III
Well the children of the Earth
What are they worth?
They're our future and they gotta come first
We gotta show them where we went astray
let them know that together
we can change this world someday

We gotta point them in the right direction
Give 'em our love now and our affection
So that when they grow up and we get old
They'll have some words of wisdom
For the kids of their own
