Allman Brothers Band, The - Brothers Of The Road Lyrics




Silent shadows of the night
Faded with the morning light
We just wrote another song
Maybe a word or two is wrong
There's so much that could be said
It's hard to write it in a line
But when the final word is read
Maybe something could be said
For all the brothers of the road
Just like you, we bear a heavy load
Been through hell and back again
If we don't lose we're bound to win

Somehow they gave it all a name
Just like a southern hurricane
We play our music like a storm
They say a brand new sound was born
We're all brothers of the road
Just like you, we bear a heavy load
Been through hell and back again
If we don't lose we're bound to win

Some of us fell along the way
We came together, not too proud to pray
But the music must go on
So there's no one left out there all alone
We're just brothers of the road
Casting shadows in the night
Big wheels rolling on and on
But everything's gonna be all right

    Okay so maybe Duane would'nt have dug the synths. I dunno by the 80s maybe he woulda. Alls I know is I dig this entire LP and the other Arista one too.

    Btw ... love the outro on this thing, very Revival like vibe.

    I like them both as well, not quite as much as their others but they stand on their own. The band later hated them and considered them their worst efforts. That may have been caused by the fact that they were spinning out of control with the drugs and other problems, approaching rock-bottom. If that's their worst, I'd say they were able to do pretty damn good on "auto-pilot"
