No Easy Road (To Easy Street)
© 2003 Lyrics by Bobbie Gallup ASCAP

It was always right around the corner
Up around the bend
But as days and years flew past
I wondered where it all would end
Traveled on some backroads
Following my bliss
Hitchhiked on some interstates
But it's all come down to this

CHORUS:
There ain't no easy road
To easy street
Gotta rest my soul
Get off my feet
Gotta look inside myself
For what makes life complete
Cause there ain't no easy road
To easy street

Don't need no killing on the market
Or to be no millionaire
Long as I can face that mirror
And like what I see there
Don't need to keep up with the Joneses
Or win the lottery
As long as I can share the joy
That God has given me

CHORUS:
There ain't no easy road
To easy street
Gotta rest my soul
Get off my feet
Gotta look inside myself
For what makes life complete
Cause there ain't no easy road
To easy street

BRIDGE:
I've taken all the detours
Paid my share of dues
Had to spend time in the valleys
Walkin' off the blues
But the mountaintops were worth the time
An' the struggle that they took
To overcome each obstacle
To get a better look....cause

CHORUS:
There ain't no easy road
To easy street
Gotta rest my soul
Get off my feet
Gotta look inside myself
For what makes life complete
Cause there ain't no easy road
No there ain't no easy road...
To easy street
