The Valley Road

Lyrics: Bruce Hornsby
Music: Bruce Hornsby

Sometimes I lead, sometimes I follow
This time I go where she wants me to go
Said maybe today, maybe tomorrow
Go deep in the woods down the low valley road

While no-one was looking on the old plantation
He took her all the way down the long valley road
They sent her away not too much later
And left him walking down the old valley road
Walk on, walk on alone

Out in the hall, they were talking in a whisper
Everybody noticed she was gone a while
Somebody said she's gone to her sister
Everybody knew what they were talking about

While no-one was looking on the old plantation
He showed her what they do down the long valley road
She came back around like nothing really happened
Left him standing on the old valley road
Walk on, walk on alone

Standing like a stone on the old plantation
The rich old man would have never let him in
Good enough to hire, not good enough to marry
When it all happens nobody wins
Walk on, walk on alone
