Allman Brothers Band – Brothers Of The Road Lyrics

Silent shadows of the night

Faded with the morning light

We just wrote another song

Maybe a word or two is wrong

There’s so much that could be said

It’s hard to write it in a line

But when the final word is read

Maybe something could be said

For all the brothers of the road

Just like you, we bear a heavy load

Been through hell and back again

If we don’t lose we’re bound to win

Somehow they gave it all a name

Just like a southern hurricane

We play our music like a storm

They say a brand new sound was born

We’re all brothers of the road

Just like you, we bear a heavy load

Been through hell and back again

If we don’t lose we’re bound to win

Some of us fell along the way

We came together, not too proud to pray

But the music must go on

So there’s no one left out there all alone

We’re just brothers of the road

Casting shadows in the night

Big wheels rolling on and on

But everything’s gonna be all right
