"End of the Road" as written by and Turla Armstrong....
At the end of the road,
He calls everyone home.
And the fire will consume us, striking through to the bone.
At the end of the road,
You will soon hear him call.
As the congregations crumble,
And the chapels will fall.

and the taste on your tongue-
Well it comes, yeah it comes
With the bittersweet pang of remorse and pain.
Till the judgment is made
The prosecution's won.
The gavel has fallen
And justice is done.
The courtroom clears
I'm left alone on the bench.
My wife and children gone,
Along with the defense.
The bailiff leads me back to my cell,
Like the riverman ferry's me to hell.
I can't blame him to hate me for what I've done
I hear them whispering in the hall:
"you'll live and die by the gun"
All I can do is sit here and pray,
That I'll be forgiven on judgment day.

tell my wife in the yard
Buried underneath the pine,
There's a shoebox full of money,
Of which I never earned a dime.
Use it to start over, the way things should've been..
Live honest,
Love again.
Tell my wife, tell my kids;
I never meant for this to happen!

when the flipped the switch,
Please do not stay,
I couldn't bear for you-
To remember me this way.

    General CommentCan't believe no one has commented on this.

    I love the Johnny Cash-type feel to it. Very cool, story telling tune.

    General CommentThe man has done something unspeakable; I think he killed someone, and feels guilty about it. He had a trial which found him guity. He is in prison awaiting the death penalty, with his family on his mind. He wants them to continue on, remember the good things about him, and be ok.
