Fast Road To Your Grave - Lyrics

Album: Strawberry Jam 1975 
Written by: Mark Searcy Middleton

Part-time lovers, Saturday nite
Cool evenin breeze, holdin’ each other tight
Out of the shadow, walks a jealous soul
Shot 'em both cold blooded, now listen to the church bell toll

Time will catch up to us all
And the rise to the top, comes right before the fall
And watch the path you pave
Might just be the fast road to your grave

Louisiana Bayou, callin’ out your name
Jumped way in too deep, got no one left to blame
But yourself, now your all alone
Drag your body out the swamp boy
Take a six-foot pine box home

Time will catch up to us all
And the rise to the top, comes right before the fall
And watch the path you pave
Might just be the fast road to your grave

Say you can’t relax, can't find your groove
Gonna call your good friend Jack, sure put you in a better mood
So you can be  - yourself you think
Just look at yourself in the mirrow, pour yourself another drink

Time will catch up to us all
And the rise to the top, comes right before the fall
And watch the path you pave
Might just be the fast road to your grave
