about

MISERY ROAD: A song with a country flair. Straight-up, emotions on the sleeve. Sad-sack lyrics about a love affair gone wrong and a man leaving town to find answers. All set against a toe-tapping beat, lead by a hooky accordion line.

lyrics

Check the oil, top off the tank
Cash my last paycheck at the bank
Last light in town, the corner store
Can’t stand to stay here anymore

My 1990 Chevrolet
I drive on out to Dismal Bay
Drive through the rain, drive through the fear
Got no windshield wipers for my tears

Checked my dusty rearview
Thought I caught a fleeting glimpse of you
So I said, jump in the front and lock the door
Can’t stand to taste these tears no more

Contemplating wrong or right
As the day overcomes the night
I wear the yoke and bear the load
And took the turn on Misery Road

Winding road, the long way home
Ten thousand miles I plan to roam
No time to eat, no time to pray
So I stop off to ask the way

I ask his name, it’s Devereaux
He said turn right on Sadness Avenue
He said the road is long and hard
Turn right on Despair Boulevard

Contemplating wrong or right
As the day overcomes the night
I wore the yoke and bore the load
And took the turn on Misery Road

Lost and rambling, roaming
Destination unknown
Always wherever I’ve gone
I just want to go home
And never be alone

Contemplating wrong or right
As the day overcomes the night
I throw the yoke to spare the load
Don’t take the turn
I missed the turn on Misery Road
