about

This is a song about everyone’s final journey. Most of us don’t know when our last moments of life will occur, only that we’re about to travel the road that I call Route 1 “ ‘cause that’s the way that it goes….it’s a trip we all take, it’s when… no one knows”

lyrics

Went to see her girls
under the sweet Southern sky
Love was so strong
was with them all the time
At the end of the day
she laid down to rest
When the sunrise came
she had already left

Took Route 1 to heaven’s gate
‘Cause that’s the way that it goes
It’s a trip we all take
It’s when no one knows

Was a hard livin’ man
who worked day and night
In the last moment
knew something wasn’t right
But he went on ahead
and bent to the task
Before it was done
found it was his last
Took Route 1 to heaven’s gate
‘Cause that’s the way that it goes
It’s a trip we all take
It’s when no one knows


Wasn’t a surprise
he’d been sick for awhile
But when he saw his kids
still made him smile
But some things you can’t stop
just come to an end
He hoped when he arrived
find himself a friend

Took Route 1 to heaven’s gate
‘Cause that’s the way that it goes
It’s a trip we all take
It’s when no one knows
When no one knows
When no one knows
