    LYRICS

    I took the road less travelled
    And came upon a desert plain
    A battle-weary warrior
    On sunny days I called for rain

    I took to the stage to go into hiding
    With another chapter to be written
    Put on a show, still sought an audience
    With whoever would listen

    Chorus:
    Looking back now was it right or wrong
    Faced with one or the other
    I know now I should have stood my ground
    Instead I ran for cover

    The divide as wide as the Grand Canyon
    Spoke of the gulf ’tween you and me
    Wish I could follow the Colorado
    Out into the open sea

    But I’d become a consummate gambler
    I’d bet it all and lost the lot
    Spent the winter in Denver
    A mile high but no closer to God

    Chorus

    Bridge:
    Never one for a daredevil stunt
    Baby to draw your attention
    Never one to put on much of a front
    But maybe I should be open to suggestion
