Life at the cross roads.

Story Behind the Song

The story of a one way road, like that fabled long black train, that you don't want to get on.

Very Unique sound. I like it. There is a niche for this type of almost spoken word stuff. I like the rawness of it.

    - David Omlor

Folk rap. Original to me.

Lyrics

The Black Tar Road
jeff rauschl ©2013

Lyrics

Looking back she could never really put her finger on
the cause / effect, the first step onto the path that shew was on
or how she ever came to be, the subject of the song
the heroine, the wander-ling on the road to never-free

Well she could blame it on her folks or she could blame it on her friends
or she could clam that she was bored, in a town of dead ends
But looking back or placing blame, things she never really did,
like looking forward, having dreams, she hadn't done since she's a kid

The first streets were oh so golden, feel the rush all cares forgotten
but even as it lifted up she felt the way begin to darken
and soon she couldn't sacrifice enough to pay the toll to get to even
then one night shaking by the road, he said I have just what you're needin'
Just get off here, take my hand, follow me, down the black tar road.

The black, the balck the black tar road....

Many times she tried to exit, admit her faults and her disease
wave on wave of calls for help wore out friends and family
Something changed inside her brain a chemistry they'd never know,
They'd never here the calling, feel the power, fell the pull
of the black, the black tar road.

The black, the black, the black tar road....

Fields of crosses on the shoulders of the black tar road,
score the losses, mark the point of journeys end.
If yo ever set out along the black tar road, they'll
save a place where you can rest, dig a hole, good night, amen......

The black, the black, the black tar road....
The black, the black, the black tar road....
