"Gravel Road" as written by and Fred Mcdowell....
I'm goin' down that gravel, gonna take the right hand road
I'm goin' down that gravel, gonnatake the right hand road
And I ain't gonna stoppin' til my baby's home

That girl I'm lovin' got that great long curly hair
That girl I'm lovin' got that great long curly hair
But her mother and her father sure don't want me there

I got to study some scheme, lord to get my baby back to herself
I got to study some scheme, Lord, to get my baby back to herself
Lord, I love that woman, I don't want nobody else

I looked down that road just as far as I could see
There was a bunch of women, and, they be followin' me
Well, the brook run into the ocean, the ocean run into that deep, deep, deep blue sea
The brook run into the ocean, the river run into that deep, deep, deep blue sea
You ought to seen the women, Lord, they be fishing after me

    General Commentthe main chorus riff is ripped or inspired by a grateful dead song, I am in the process of trying to remember which song but I think its Easy Wind.
