Lyrics

When the road is dark
And the journey long
I need someone to help me carry on
He's sitting on the seat
Watching over me
Fills me with comfort and security

When the weather's stormy
And my traction slips
He will be my rumble strips
Keeping me straight
Down life's highway
Ready to face another day

The devil's on my left
My dog's on my right
He's my ready, steady, guiding light
He's got a strength that's calm and quiet
My dog is my co-pilot

When I'm confused
And I don't know
His nose points the way for me to go
He's my compass
My GPS
He'll keep me out of any mess

The devil's on my left
My dog's on my right
He's my ready, steady, guiding light
He's got a strength that's calm and quiet
My dog is my co-pilot

Some people pray to Allah
Some trust the pope
The Dali Lama gives some others hope
I got a friend
Right by my side
Life is good when he's here for the ride

The devil's on my left
My dog's on my right
He's my ready, steady, guiding light
He's got a strength that's calm and quiet
My dog is my co-pilot
