​Hard Road

This song is by Lake and appears on the album Paradise Island (1979).

Woke this morning ten a.m., room was smelling sweetly
Felt somebody touching me, thought I must be dreaming
She leaned over, said hello, honey ya feeling
I said hard roads caught me cold

Showered and shaved, packed my case, taxi it was waiting
Said goodbye, I had to fly, she said see you later
Went to pay, there wasn't nothing there, money she had stolen
Yeah those hard roads caught me cold

And it's a hard road of uphill climbing
That makes me feel this way
Hard road it keeps from my home
Hard road there's no declining
Just make your weary way
Long hard road that I'm on

Next hotel feel like hell, room no ventilation
Service sucks and I'm out of bucks, TV's got one station
Wasting time, people stand in line, full of inspiration
Hard road's caught me cold

And it's a hard road of uphill climbing
That makes me feel this way
Hard road it keeps from my home
Hard road there's no declining
Just make your weary way
Long hard road that I'm on

Done the show, we really let it go, thought it was a good one
Hit the bar, drinking whisky hard, feeling like some hot fun
Rooms revolve, another wake-up call, body it was aching
Yeah, them hard roads caught me cold

And it's a hard road of uphill climbing
That makes me feel this way
Hard road it keeps from my home
Hard road there's no declining
Just make your weary way
Long hard road that I'm on
