country roads lead the way to the light that always shines
moving thru another day to the ones i've left behind
the secret ain't no secret, you know it's plain to see
you can't be truly happy till your absolutely free

but you know the lady keeps me going
she always keeps me going, she's my backwoods rose

moving down that road, the wind blowing through my hair
I don't know where i'm going, and you know I just don't care
i'm looking for the golden road to everything that's kind
but that ain't always easy, I got rosie on my mind
but you know the lady keeps me going
she always keeps me going, she's my backwoods rose
fear, should I go, where to go, I don't know
fear, should I go, where to go, I don't know

I turn and head for home to the place I know so well
you know I never get too far cause i'm under rosie's spell
she says to me "hey baby, been wondering where you'd gone."
I say "my pretty rosie, you know you're the only one."
but you know the lady keeps me going
she always keeps me going, she's my backwoods rose

    General CommentI think this could be about a girl whom Katz must have known and fell in love with (platonic or otherwise, it doesn't matter). One of my favorite Hookah songs.
