Subject: Lyr Add: REDEMPTION ROAD (Tom Paxton/Geoff Bartley
Today being the final day to back Tom's new album "Redemption Road", I decide to put the lyrics to the title song here. It was originally an instrumental piece by Geoff Bartley, and Tom wrote the words after hearing it on the radio.

REDEMPTION ROAD
(Tom Paxton; Geoff Bartley)

Paid the man all he was owed,
Tipped my hat and walked away
Down that sweet redemption road,
Put it down to yesterday.

Come redemption my old friend,
When the seeds of life are sowed.
Come and lead me to the end
Of that sweet redemption road.

Looking back I can't complain.
I took out what I put in.
Days of snow and days of rain
And redemption in the end.

Come redemption my old friend,
When the seeds of life are sowed.
Come and lead me to the end
Of that sweet redemption road.

Only time and time alone
Treats each weary soul the same.
When my sum of days has flown,
Time alone will know my name.
When my sum of days has flown,
Time alone will know my name.


The project will end tomorrow, and there are 537 backers for this new album so far. If you haven't heard about this new album yet and still want to back it, click HERE.
