(David Lee Murphy/Waylon Jennings)

Well I've been up on the high road
Spent some time on the low road
Seen a little bit of it all if you know what I mean
From pickup trucks to limousines
Yeah I've made some turns Lord that took me out of the way
Been more than a few times that I wound up in the wrong place just

Tryin' to get there
Sometimes that ain't easy
When you really don't know where that is
But I've learned along the way
That we're all lookin' for the same thing
And I'm tryin' to get there oh the best I can

Growin' up's been tough on me
I still don't know what I wanna be
I hope the good Lord understands
There's times I need a helping hand
'Cause I'll take the long way to find the short way round
And just like everybody I'm tryin' to reach a higher ground but I'm

Tryin' to get there
Sometimes that ain't easy
When you really don't know where that is
But I've learned along the way
That we're all lookin' for the same thing
And I'm tryin' to get there oh the best I can

Tryin' to get there
Sometimes that ain't easy
When you really don't know where that is
But I've learned along the way
That we're all lookin' for the same thing
And I'm tryin' to get there oh the best I can

Yeah I've made some turns Lord that took me out of the way
Been more than a few times that I wound up in the wrong place just

Tryin' to get there
Sometimes that ain't easy
When you really don't know where that is
But I've learned along the way
That we're all lookin' for the same thing
And I'm tryin' to get there oh the best I can
