That road goes on forever
Never bending at all
Straight on to Memphis
I cry when I hear it call

Now she sings her songs in Glory
Away from all of her pain
A voice as sweet as the sunshine
Oh Bess these blues are coming back once again

That road is dark and lonely
And he’s tired and low
I wish she could stay a little longer
But He says it’s time for her to go

Now she sings her songs in Glory
Away from all of her pain
A voice as sweet as the sunshine
Oh Bess these blues are coming back once again

That road goes on forever
I hear her voice as I drive through the night
And when I look up to Heaven
Her star will always burn bright

Now she sings her songs in Glory
Away from all of her pain
A voice as sweet as the sunshine
Oh Bess these blues are coming back again
