I'll take the dirt road.....

Click any photo to enlarge.

The song playing has always been one of my favorite songs...I have included the lyrics below. I got them off the web and the place that had them did not say who wrote them. I hate not being able to tell you who wrote it, and all I ever had was the cassette and it didn't tell.

Anyway, when I talk about going on a drive or rambling round, these are typical of the roads I like to travel a very slow pace. If someone gets behind me I will speed up until I find a place to pull over till they can pass. These are some of the roads my daughter and I traveled over today...a couple were un-intended. We call that 'taking the scenic route' in our house. I have a girlfriend that she and her husband ended up on road with their car and the only others on it were people with 4-wheel drive trucks, etc.

The Dirt Road
Daddy worked hard for his dollar
He said some folks don't, but that's o.k.
They won't know which road to follow
Because an easy street might lead you astray

I'll take the dirt road,
it's all I know
I've been a'walking it for years
It's gone where I need to go
It ain't easy, it ain't supposed to be
So I'll take my time
And life won't pass me by
'Cause it's right there to find, on the dirt road

I have lived life in the fast lane
You gotta watch your back and look both ways
When it's said and done the time we have is borrowed
You better make real sure you're headed the right way

Chorus x2

On the dirt road

Dirt roads are great fun to drive down because the sights are often great. But the one on the bottom seems quite narrow, almost like a very long driveway. Bet you see some great wildlife!

That first one again reminds me of here Rose. I still need to take that pic of my road for you.
I could drive down them all day.

Hi Rose..
These are mind kind of roads... I sure think me, you, and your Neal would have such fun if we ever met up... you two are most certainly 'my kind of folk' :O)

Beautiful photography.

If you like dirt roads you'd definitely like Alaska. :) You can't see anything up there without driving on a dirt road...okay, that exaggerating a little. :) Seriously, out car was covered with dust when we turned it in at the rental car company and I was constantly fighting the dust on my camera lens.

Yeah Tom, we would have a great time if we ever met up. Maybe one of these days I'll make it back to the good old UK and if I do I'm definitely going to look you up.

I like the dirt roads too. It's fun to drive down them just to see what you can find. That's Sawyer Brown singing. I haven't heard anything about them in a long time.
I've tried to get this music on my test blog just so I can listen while I'm on the computer but it always says I need a mobile phone. Is there something I'm missing?
