Lyrics

UPHILL


IS THERE FOR THE NIGHT A RESTING PLACE
A ROOF FOR WHEN THE SLOW DARK HOURS BEGIN
MAY NOT THE DARKNESS HIDE IT FROM MY FACE
OH YOU CANNOT MISS THAT INN....
NO YOU CANNOT MISS THAT INN.....


SHALL I MEET OTHER WAYFARERS AT NIGHT
THOSE WHO'VE GONE BEFORE
THEN, MUST I KNOCK OR CALL WHEN JUST IN SIGHT
OH THEY WILL NOT KEEP YOU STANDIN' AT THAT DOOR
NO THEY WILL NOT KEEP YOU STANDIN' AT THAT DOOR



DOES THE ROAD WIND UPHILL ALL THE WAY?
WILL THE DAYS jOURNEY TAKE THE WHOLE LONG DAY?
YES FROM MORN TO NIGHT MY FRIENDS
UNTILL THE VERY END
DOES THE ROAD WIND UPHILL ALL THE WAY


SHALL I FIND COMFORT TRAVEL SORE AND WEAK
OF LABOR YOU SHALL FIND THE SUM
WILL THERE BE A BED FOR ME AND ALL WHO SEEK?
YEA , BEDS FOR ALL WHO COME....
YEA, BEDS FOR ALL WHO COME....

DOES THE ROAD WIND UPHILL ALL THE WAY?
WILL THE DAYS JOURNEY TAKE THE WHOLE LONG DAY?
YES FROM MORN TO NIGHT MY FRIENDS
UNTILL THE VERY END
DOES THE ROAD WIND UPHILL ALL THE WAY?
DOES THE ROAD WIND UPHILL ALL THE WAY?
