the road is a lover lyrics – alison krauss

i met a man
traveling down the road
he looked me in the eye
and he gave me a ring
and he gave me a rose
and he told me some gypsy lies

the road is a lover, you never recover
not now or any time soon
my head starts to spin
when i think where i’ve been
playin’ twin to an old fiddle tune, oh
as the wind chases after the moon

through the kindness
shown me that day
i gave him this melody
and we sang in duet
‘neath the stars in the sky
and the shadows of dancing trees

the road is a lover, you never recover
not now or any time soon
my head starts to spin
when i think where i’ve been
playin’ twin to an old fiddle tune, oh
as the wind chases after the moon
