Well im-a going back down maybe one more time
Deep down home, october road
And I might like to see that little friend of mine
That I left behind once upon a time

Oh, promised land and me still standing
Its a test of time
Its a real good sign

Let the sun run down right behind the hill
I know how to stand there still till the moon rise up
Right behind the pine, oh lord

October road
(repeat)

Its the big-time life that I cant abide
Raise my rent. tan my hide.
Sweet call of the countryside
Go down slow. open wide.

I did my time
And it changed my mind
Im satisfied oh.
I got so low down, fed up
My god, I could hardly move
Wont you come on, my brother
Get on up and help me find my groove

Keep me walking, october road.
Keep me walking in the sunshine, yeah
A little friend of mine
October road
(repeat)
Help me now

    General CommentThis song is about choosing the slower pace and more satisfying life found in rural areas compared with the busy city.

    "I did my time
    And it changed my mind
    Im satisfied oh."

    I can relate. Great song!

    General CommentI believe it's about the changing of the seasons and recalling old memories with different points of time, such as fall, in this case.
