Dark Road’s A Hard Road To Travel

   A dark road’s a hard road to travel
   A light road is always the best
   A dark road will lead you to trouble
   A light road will lead you to rest

I’m going to see my new jail tomorrow
It’s a place I have never been before
And when my woman comes tomorrow
I’ll meet her with a smile at the door

Don’t ever be downhearted
Where there’s a will there’s a way
Tomorrow the sun may be shining
Although it is cloudy today

Don’t this road look dark and lonesome
Don’t the sea look blue and deep
Will you ever think of me darling
When you can not hear me speak
