The Road You Take
Lyrics
The road you take
© 2011 Bruce Mills (SOCAN BMI)

I could have been a man without a name
Living alone in a far away city
Spending my days and nights on the streets without a friend
It could have been me
It could have been me

I could have been a man of fortune and fame
Living high on a mountain majestic
Spending my time looking down on the rivers and the plains
It could have been me
It could have been me
It could have been me

Chorus
The road that you take will always be
The life that you make along the way
Every heartache and sorrow and broken dream
Will lead you someplace
Will take you someplace
Will help you to help
Someone someday

I could have been a prophet or a preacher of the gospel
Spreading the word about the power and the glory
Spending my time saving souls and healing their pain
It could have been me, yes
It could have been me

I could have been the king of a great domain
Or a leader of soldiers with battles to win
Fighting for justice and truth and freedom for all
It could have been me
It could have been me
It could have been me

Chorus
The road that you take will always be
The life that you make along the way
Every heartache, every sorrow, every broken dream
Will lead you someplace
Will take you someplace
Will help you to help
Someone someday

I could have been a shepherd of cattle and sheep
Or a farmer with great fields of grain to reap
Or a sailor or a builder or a poet or a painter
But I am what God made
I am what God made
Oh I am what God made
Made me to be
