Oh, promised land and me still standing
It's a test of time
It's a real good sign
Let the sun run down right behind the hill
I know how to stand there still till the moon rise up
Right behind the pine, oh Lord
It's the big-time life that I can't abide
Raise my rent. tan my hide.
Sweet call of the countryside
Go down slow. open wide.
I did my time
And it changed my mind
I'm satisfied oh.
I got so low down, fed up
My god, I could hardly move
Won't you come on, my brother
Get on up and help me find my groove
Keep me walking, October road.
Keep me walking in the sunshine, yeah
A little friend of mine
Help me nowJames Taylor October Road
