Stood next to Lazarus saw him in his bed
Away, the highway rolls away
Sweet smell petroleum in Venice where we wed
Away, the highway rolls away

Why does the road have to end here?
Why does the road have to end?

She smelt the Marigold, flower of the dead
He begged forgivenesses from a younger woman's bed

Why does the road...

Storyville to Paducah
McGregor to the lonesome pines
A vengeful God of anger
Of poverty, hardship and lies...

Fading lights of emerald, we're leaving New Orleans
Port Gibson trailer park, they've dressed the hanging tree
