      About "The Road You Choose"

      Lyrics for Jerry Jeff Walker - "The Road You Choose"

      Django Walker

      Skinny young kid who sits in the back of the class
      Nobody knows his name, nobody cares to ask
      They just sit up front and tell him he won't go far
      Not knowing one day he'll grow up to be a movie star

      Chorus:
      Got to hold your head up high if you're gonna see at all
      Got to put your foot above the rest if you're gonna rise at all
      Got to spread your wings and fly if you don't want to fall
      'Cause it's the road that you choose that'll take you through it all

      Now that kid has grown up to be that movie star
      Seemed like yesterday people told him he couldn't go far
      Tonight's his big premiere; he's got tons of fans
      Next week he's on the late show with David Letterman

      Chorus

      He's older now, he's got grey hair and all
      He's got two teenage kids, John and Paul
      One of them is having the same problems he did too
      He just says son hold on here's what you've got to do

      Chorus
