Lyrics

DOWN THIS WIDE OPEN ROAD
By: James Hoppe & Monique Hoppe
© 2013




Verse
He'd been staring down a bottle's end day after day
It'd been that way since his drillin' job was taken away
Self-doubt weighed on his shoulders like a two ton load of steel
His life was stuck in park if he'd only grab the wheel

Chorus
Down this wide open road
There'd be no regrets
To embrace the path
That lied ahead
Where dark wicked clouds
Are left behind
Amber painted skies
Are all he'd find

Down this wide open road


Verse
He never thought he'd see the broken on his face
He'd been dreamin' for a while now to get out of this place
So he packed his bags, walked out the door of his trailer one last time
He rode for miles and miles wantin' to find a better life

Chorus
Down this wide open road
There'd be no regrets
To embrace the path
That lied ahead
Where dark wicked clouds
Are left behind
Amber painted skies
Are all he'd find

Down this wide open road

Bridge

He sees himself three years from now
On the front porch of his farm house
He looks into her golden eyes
Knowin' he has found the rest of his life



Chorus
Down this wide open road
There'd be no regrets
To embrace the path
That lied ahead
Where dark wicked clouds
Are left behind
Amber painted skies
Are all he'd find

Down this wide open road

Down this wide open road
