CDX InstaTracks – George Jones Tribute

THE ROUTE THAT I TOOK (My tribute to George Jones)
Writer: Sammy Kershaw

I’VE TRAVELED MILLIONS OF MILES
HUNG WITH GOOD AND BAD CROWDS
BEEN ON TOP AND WAY DOWN LOW TOO
PAID OFF SOME LONG OVER DUES
HAILED THE KING AND BAD NEWS
AND I’VE BEEN LONESOME A TIME OR TWO

I’VE BEEN LOST IN THE WHISKEY
DID SOME RUNNIN’ ON EMPTY
I’VE LIVED HARD
IT’S ALL IN THE BOOK
BUT THE LINES ON MY FACE
AIN’T THE MILES THAT YOU SEE
IT’S JUST THE ROUTE THAT I TOOK

CHANGE SOME THINGS IF I COULD
I JUST DON’T KNOW IF I WOULD
MY ROADS HAVE BEEN ROUGH AND SMOOTH
REMEMBER WHERE I CAME FROM
JUST NOT ALL THAT I’VE DONE
THERE’S NOT MUCH I HAVEN’T LIVED THROUGH

I’VE BEEN LOST IN THE WHISKEY
DID SOME RUNNIN’ ON EMPTY
I’VE LIVED HARD
IT’S ALL IN THE BOOK
BUT THE LINES ON MY FACE
AIN’T THE MILES THAT YOU SEE
IT’S JUST THE ROUTE THAT I TOOK

IT’S JUST THE ROUTE THAT I TOOK
