      About "RIGHT OR LEFT AT OAK STREET"

      Lyrics for Roy Clark - "RIGHT OR LEFT AT OAK STREET"

      The alarm rang at seven this morning
      The same time it did yesterday
      Seven-thirty is my breakfast time
      And I know what the wife?s gonna say

      The Crawfords next door got a new swimming pool
      The Millers got a color TV
      Mr. Wilson's job is not good as yours,
      But his wife dresses better than me

      I get to the school at eight o-five
      And drop off the kids at the gate
      Then I drive past the clock outside the bank
      It's exactly a quarter past eight

      When I reach the stop sign at Oak Street
      The same thought crosses my mind
      Should I turn right like I always have,
      Or left and leave it behind?

      Right or left at Oak Street
      That's the choice I face everyday
      And I don't know which takes more courage
      The staying or the running away

      A left turn would take me to somewhere
      Leave alarm clocks and schedules behind
      And the world wouldn't care if I'm not somewhere
      At some particular time

      Where a man can do what he wants to do
      And no one expects him to give
      All of his time to the same old routine
      In the one life that he has to live

      I'm not sure which way is the best way
      But I've always turned right before
      And it might be strange at the end of the day
      If they weren't there at the door

      A man must make his decisions
      But he must consider the stakes
      For every mans life is a gamble
      It depends on the turn that he takes

      Right or left at Oak Street
      That's the choice I face everyday
      And I don't know which takes more courage
      The staying or the running away
