Today’s SLS prompt is travel type words, such as ‘street, avenue, road, boulevard, lane, drive’. Lots of songs to choose from! Thanks, Jim!

This song kind of touches on the fact that touring with a band is harder than it seems. The constant traveling, to keep up with their commitments, the loneliness of being on the road, and sometimes just wanting to go home, wears a person down. But still you do it over and over for the money and the fame. Is it worth it? Maybe…maybe not.

 

“Gypsy Road”, by Cinderella, is a single from their 1987 album, “Long Cold Winter”. It was written by Tom Keifer, and is on the Mercury label.

I used to be now I’m not what you see, Lord I try
And now it seems all those dreams have come true, but they’re passing me by
Some fast talkin’ mama for a dollar put a smile on my face
I’m drivin’ all night
I end up in the same old place

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

And who’s to care if I grow my hair to the sky
I’ll take a wish and a prayer cross my fingers ’cause I always get by
Some fast talkin’ jerk for a dollar wiped the smile off my face
I’m drivin’ all night
Just to keep the rat in the race

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

Sometimes I feel so old
Got my lights burnin’ bright
But I’m lookin’ pretty sold
Sometimes I feel so cold
So cold
Let’s go

Got to get on home
My gypsy road can’t take me home
My gypsy road can’t take me home, t-t-take me

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on p-p-pushin’

My gypsy road
My gypsy road
My gypsy road
My gypsy road

My gypsy road

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
