Paths of Victory

Trails of troubles,

Roads of battles,

Paths of victory,

I shall walk.

.

The trail is dusty

And my road it might be rough,

But the better roads are waiting

And boys it ain't far off.

.

Trails of troubles,

Roads of battles,

Paths of victory,

We shall walk.

.

I walked down by the river,

I turned my head up high.

I saw that silver linin'

That was hangin' in the sky.

.

Trails of troubles,

Roads of battles,

Paths of victory,

We shall walk.

.

The evenin' dusk was rollin',

I was walking down the track.

There was a one-way wind a-blowin'

And it was blowin' at my back.

.

Trails of troubles,

Roads of battles,

Paths of victory,

We shall walk.

.

The gravel road is bumpy,

It's a hard road to ride,

But there's a clearer road a-waitin'

With the cinders on the side.

.

Trails of troubles,

Roads of battles,

Paths of victory,

We shall walk.

.

That evening train was rollin',

The hummin' of its wheels,

My eyes they saw a better day

As I looked across the fields.

.

Trails of troubles,

Roads of battles,

Paths of victory,

We shall walk.

.

The trail is dusty,

The road it might be rough,

But the good road is a-waitin'

And boys it ain't far off.

.

Trails of troubles,

Roads of battles,

Paths of victory,

We shall walk.
