Lyrics

It was high noon when I saw her shadow, high in canyon in South Colorado, she
was looking for a way to keep from going insane.
But then she cried and jumped in the river, she was running away from the great
Lawgiver, and her tears flowed down like watercolors in the rain.
I said "Don't fret, cause you're gonna make it. Ain't no doubt that you can take it.
Took a hard hit but now you're gotta shake it justa keep on walkin'"
She said: "Don't lie or tell me a fable!" I said "Soon you'll be seated at a banquet table,
just follow me, you gotta keep on walkin'".

CHORUS
I see the road before me, Ain't nobody else gonna tell my story, and I'm going out
in a blaze of glory one day.
I will walk the road with the holy gypsies, filling my mind with the holy mysteries,
and I ain't lookin' back on ancient history. Gotta keep on walkin'.
Since that day we've been on a journey, through the ice and snow and the hot
winds burnin' and there ain't no chance that we'll be turning around.
Just keep our eyes on the far horizon, looking for the day that holds the prize and
keeping our minds on the highway to Zion on we just Keep on walkin;
Through the twists and turns and the mountains and valleys, through the crowded highways or the darkened alleys,
we will find our way to the golden chalice. Gonna keep on walkin'
Through the doubters and the crazies and the losers and the winners through the
hard line saints and the broken down sinners the wise old souls And the new
beginners we just keep on walkin;.




CHORUS
I see the road before me, Ain't nobody else gonna tell my story, and I'm going out in a blaze of glory one day.
I will walk the road with the a band of gypsies, filling my mind with the holy mysteries, and I ain't lookin' back on ancient history. Gotta keep on walkin'.
Crossed the land with a solemn promise, drinking the water of the Psalms of solace, and there ain't no doubt We are strangers in a strange land.
We just keep on walkin'. Gotta keep on walkin' Got to keep on walkin'
