On The Long Winding Road

The long winding road it does lead to somewhere
To some other place in the big world out there
Along by the mountains it winds up and down
On through the flat countryside to the far away town

On the long winding road that leads to places far
Are many a cyclist and motorbike, truck, bus and car
That links villages and towns in places far and wide
Far inland from the ocean in the remote countryside

The long winding road built by men some now dead
For the benefit of the road users in the decades ahead
Men who worked hard for their money every working day
And for them there never was an easy pay

The long distance truck driver on the long winding road
Is racing fading daylight to his distant abode
His wife and children expecting him home for the tea
Three hundred miles inland from the town by the sea.
