Alison Krauss – The Road Is A Lover Lyrics

(Bob Lucas/Belly Boy Music, BMI)

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
