where do i go from here (a trucker’s song) lyrics – alan jackson

well i came from alabama
with a banjo on my knee
i’m goin’ to louisiana
my true love for to see

it rained all night the day i left
the weather it was dry
the sun so hot i froze to death
suzanna don’t you cry

i got a long way to go
i sure feel it now deep down in these dusty clothes
through another town backed up with capricious souls
i got a long way to go

i got a lot left to say
to the empty seat that stood beside me
through the fray
through the midnight moon
saw fit to light my way
got a lot left to say

but where do i go from here
when i’m lost out on the road
the way’s not clear
to find my way back home
i need to hear
the only voice that leads me on
so i can find my way back to you

i had a dream the other night
when everything was still
i thought i saw suzanna
comin’ down the hill

the buckwheat cake was in her mouth
a tear was in her eye
says i’m comin’ from the south
suzanna don’t you cry

where do i go from here
when i’m lost out on the road
and the way’s not clear
to find my way back home
i need to hear
the only voice that leads me on
so i can find my way back to you

soon we’ll be in new orleans
then i’ll look around
and when i find suzanna
i’ll fall down on the ground

and if i do not find her
then i should surely die
and when i’m dead and buried
suzanna don’t you cry
