Dusty Road

from the album "Daniel Amos"

Words and Music by Terry Scott Taylor
1976 Maranatha! Music
Dusty road, toil and trouble
Seems I'm goin' down that way again
Now, dark and cold, hay and stubble
This world ain't my friend
So forget me not, oh, my Dear
When I kneel down and pray
Oh, Rock of my salvation, let me hide away

Narrow road, wide destruction
I'll enter by the Door
Now, win or lose, each must chose
I don't want to lose no more
So, hold on, Lord, when I feel it hurtin'
I know the pain won't stay
Oh, precious Jesus, Lord and Savior, let me hide away

Hide away in the secret chamber of Your love
Hide away in the sweet solitude and rest
When I see that ceiling falling all around me
Let me hide, oh, let me hide away

I'll take my cross and carry on
Oh, even when my life, it seems to be all wrong
'Cause I know when those clouds roll on
I'll see the Son come shinin' through

Dusty road, toil and trouble
Seems I'm goin' down that way again
Now, dark and cold, hay and stubble
This world ain't my friend
So forget me not, oh, my Dear
When I kneel down and pray
Oh, Rock of my salvation, let me hide away

Hide away in the secret chamber of Your love
Hide away in the sweet solitude and rest
When I see that ceiling falling all around me
Let me hide, oh, let me hide away
