They used to tell me boy you ain’t goin’ nowhereWith your cheap guitar and your big long hairYou gotta realize all your responsibilitiesYou gotta get out to work and face realityYou gotta get up in the morning take your heavy loadAnd you gotta keep goin’ down the long black roadSo I drifted for a while down the road to ruinI couldn’t find my way I didn’t know what I was doin’I saw a lot of people coming back the other waySo I kept on goin’ when I heard them sayYou gotta get up in the morning take your heavy loadAnd you gotta keep goin’ down the long black roadI made a lot of money I was makin’ quite a messBut they all told me money wouldn’t bring me happinessYou gotta work like a man in a real man’s lifeYou’re gonna have to take all the trouble and strifeYou gotta get up in the morning take your heavy loadAnd you gotta keep goin’ down the long black road
