The Low Way

Posted on May 13, 2014

Now if you want to go where the people are real –
Look you in the eye and they say what they feel,
Take the low way. That’s where you should be.

There’s no one percent with power over the rest.
We’ll get where we’re going if we give it our best
Out on the low way ain’t no ride for free.

So keep your highway.
It’s the low way where I want to be.
If you’re goin’ my way, you’ll learn to love it down here.
Yeah, it’s the only road for me.

Well no one’s high and mighty, and no one looks down
On an honest day’s work. We keep our feet on the ground.
Down on the low way that’s all you gotta know.

There ain’t no shortcuts, ain’t no pie in the sky.
Just toil away, and we’ll all get by.
Here on the low way, yeah that’s how things go.

So keep your highway.
It’s the low way where I want to be.
If you’re goin’ my way, you’ll learn to love it down here.
Yeah it’s the only road for me.

If you want to work – take the low way.
If your hands don’t mind dirt – take the low way.
If you got a strong back, you should go my way.
Just wanna relax – stick to the highway.

Yeah keep your highway.
It’s the low way where I want to be.
If you’re goin’ my way, you’ll learn to love it down here.
Yeah it’s the only road for me.

So keep your highway.
It’s the low way where I want to be.
If you’re goin’ my way, you’ll learn to love it down here.
Yeah it’s the only road for me.
