lyrics

If I walk from that silent mine
Just a old fraud from the Mudville Nine
Well the road is wide
Black of lung and light of grace
I really don't remember now how I found this place
Well, the road is wide

Found a dime and I stole a buck
Till I staggered out of Mudville in a warn out truck
That town is long behind
Where I glanced at the mound till I caught his eye
I swung for the moon and I swung high

Hit the road plaid Roebuck
The berries all bloomed like a white teacup
And the road was wide
I picked em all at a quarter a day
For every bag I filled there's a bag I ate
And the road was wide

Summer come with a retching heat
My old ball cap and some beans to eat
With some time to bide
Steam blew and an axle bent
Radiator sings curbside laments
With some time to bide

The cold came and the leaves were brown
Stuck in West Virginia in a mining town
Put the road aside
One room and an iron stove
After twelve long hours in a darkened hole
Put the road aside

If I walk from that silent mine
Just a old fraud from the Mudville Nine
Well the road is wide
