Paths of Victory Lyrics

by Bob Dylan

The trail is dark and dusty
The road is kinda rough
But the good road is awaitin'
And boys, it ain't far off

Trails of troubles
Roads of battle
Paths of victory
We shall walk

I walked out to the valley
I turned my head up high
I've seen that silver linin'
That was hangin' in the sky

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk

The wind dust was rollin'
As I was walking down the track
There was a one way wind blowin'
It was blowin' at my back

Trails of troubles
Roads of battle
Paths of victory
We shall walk

The gravel road is bumpy
It's a hard, old road to ride
But the clearer road's up yonder
With the cinders on the side

Trails of troubles
Roads of battle
Paths of victory
We shall walk

The morning train was movin'
The hummin' of its wheels
Told me of the new day
Comin' across the fields

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk
