A Little Farther Down The Road    (1979)

When I get back to Charlotte once again
It's good to know she's waiting there to take me in
Those Asheville lights tempt me to rest my load
But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road

My life's an open book, the words are free
And there's an empty page right here in Cherokee
Where I could write another episode
But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road

In Roanoke there's a place to lay my head
I could walk right in and lay right down with nothing said
There'd be no questions asked and nothing owed
But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road

My life's an open book, the words are free
And there's an empty page right here in Cherokee
Where I could write another episode
But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road

My life's an open book, the words are free
And there's an empty page right here in Cherokee
Where I could write another episode
But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road

My life's an open book, the words are free
And there's an empty page right here in Cherokee
Where I could write another episode
But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road

But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road
But Charlotte's just a little farther down the road
