Walk Our Own Road Lyrics

by Randy Travis

There's do'ers and don'ters and I wills and won'ters
And them, that don't even try
Givers and takers, movers and shakers
And them that are just passing by

Skid rows and winos and some folks that I know
That don't do like I think they should
I thought they were livin' their lives all wrong
Long, before I understood

We all have to walk our own road
We can't always go where we're told
In the end where it'll end up, the Lord only knows
But we all have to walk our own road

I've had some good times and I've had a good life
And I've had things goin' my way
I've walked the high ground and treasures that I've found
An' women who brightened my day

Then there were times I was caught in the crosswinds
With life, goin' 'round and around
Like a ship with no sails, I was caught in a gale
'Til I fin'lly just ran it a ground

We all have to walk our own road
We can't always go where we're told
In the end where it'll end up, the Lord only knows
But we all have to walk our own road

We all have to walk our own road
We can't always go where we're told
In the end where it'll end up, the Lord only knows
But we all have to walk our own road
