Words & Music
Stephen Ray Willoughby © 1995
Intro: I’m a free child rolling fast, free and easy, riding high.
And I pray this freedom lasts, if it didn’t, I would die.
Ride the skyline to the mountains, or the shoreline to the sea.
I can stop at any time or place, and do just what I please.
I can ride along the back roads, by the rivers and the trees.
I can say hello or wave good-bye, or sing my song for free.
I was born for this life, it runs and rambles through my blood.
My mother was the road, my father, the free sky above.
Verse 1 My mind is so much clearer now,
I can see beyond my nose.
I know where I’m bound,
Yes, and I know that’s where I’ll go.
Cast off my heavy woes,
Pack up all my clothes,
Get back on MOTHER ROAD.
Chorus Wheels keep on turning,
Keep on burning, up MOTHER ROAD;
Don’t go slow, don’t go slow, don’t go slow, don’t go slow.
Verse 2 It feels so good to be alive,
And I can be what I have chose.
I’ve found that magic door,
Yes, and I just won’t let it close.
I gotta let my music flow,
Sing the music of my soul,
Get out on MOTHER ROAD.
(Repeat Chorus) Wheels keep on turning etc;
(Repeat Intro & Fade Out)
