There Is A Road

Words:  Michael Trapani

Music: You


Correspondent Michael Trapani sent this one along for us all.  Here is how to play it:  "I wrote this up from a tongue twister and sing it with a variety of improvised melodies (try it Dylan style, or country)".  Yup.  That means any chords.  Any melody.  Any style.  It is a great way to hone your chops.  Try a medley!  Go nuts & have fun!


There is a road and I upon it

and where it leads I do not know

nor care, as sorrow near behind reminds me

ahead can lurk no greater woe.


My feet slap down in dusty clouds

to scatter leaves along my wake

and leaps my heart, light to go

along whichever road I take.
