"Road of the Righteous" as written by Ken Casey, Rick Barton and Matthew Edward Kelly....
Now I saw a man stand up one day and fight to save his life
Just a common worker, supporting his kids and his wife
Put a plug in his jug, things looked up for sure
But the whole damn thing of it was there is no blasted cure.

Now I saw a man stand up one day and fight to save his life
Just a common worker, supporting his kids and his wife
Put a plug in his jug, things looked up for sure
But the whole damn thing of it was there is no blasted cure.

I've seen a few men go "The Road of the Righteous"
And just a few have traveled "This Old Lonely Path"
I've seen a few men go "The Road of the Righteous"
By God I'm sure I'll see some more "Go Their Blessed Way."

Hey it's gonna, take some foot work to get you on your way
They'll be pit-falls and some cat-calls but hard you must persist
Cause life is so precious and we have only got one shot,
You move along and you stay God strong all the treasures will be got.

I've seen a few men go "The Road of the Righteous"
And just a few have traveled "This Old Lonely Path"
I've seen a few men go "The Road of the Righteous"
By God I'm sure I'll see some more "Go Their Blessed Way."

I've seen a few men go "The Road of the Righteous"
And just a few have traveled "This Old Lonely Path"
I've seen a few men go "The Road of the Righteous"
By God I'm sure I'll see some more "Go Their Blessed Way."

Now I saw a man stand up one day and fight to save his life
Just a common worker, supporting his kids and his wife
Put a plug in his jug things looked up for sure
But the whole damn thing of it was there is no blasted cure.

I've seen a few men go "The Road of the Righteous"
And just a few have traveled "This Old Lonely Path"
I've seen a few men go "The Road of the Righteous"
By God I'm sure I'll see some more "Go Their Blessed Way."
