ATF: Scenic Routes

This series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.

Take the Long Way Home
Supertramp
So you think you're a Romeo
Playing a part in a picture show
Take the long way home
Take the long way home
‘Cause you're the joke of the neighborhood
Why should you care if you're feeling good
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

But there are times that you feel you're part of the scenery
All the greenery
Is comin' down boy

And then your wife seems to think you're part of the furniture
Oh it's peculiar
She used to be so nice

When lonely days turn to lonely nights
You take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home
You never see what you want to see
Forever playing to the gallery
You take the long way home
Take the long way home

And when you're up on the stage
It's so unbelievable
Unforgettable
How they adore you
But then your wife seems to think you're losing your sanity
Oh calamity
Is there no way out

Does it feel that your life's become a catastrophe
Oh it has to be
For you to grow boy
When you look through the years
And see what you could have been
Oh what you might have been
If you'd had more time

So when the day comes to settle down
Who's to blame if you're not around
You took the long way home
You took the long way home…



Road to Nowhere
Ozzy Osbourne
I was looking back on my life
And all the things have come to me
I'm still looking for the answers
I'm still searching for the key

The wreckage of my past keeps haunting me
It just won't leave me alone
I still find it all a mystery
Could it be a dream
The road to nowhere
Leads to me

Through all the happiness and sorrow
I guess I'd do it all again
Live for today and die tomorrow
It's still the road that never ends

The wreckage of my past keeps haunting me
It just won't leave me alone
I still find it all a mystery
Could it be a dream
The road to nowhere
Leads to me

Ah Ah
Ah Ah
The road to nowhere's gonna pass me by
Ah ah
Ah ah
I hope we never have to say goodbye
I never wanna live without you
Yeah

The wreckage of my past keeps haunting me
It just won't leave me alone
I still find it all a mystery
Could it be a dream
The road to nowhere
Leads to me
The road to nowhere
Leads to me
The road to nowhere
Leads to me
You got
You got
You got
To lead to me
The road to nowhere
Leads to me
You got
You got
You got
To lead to me
You got
You got
You got
To lead to me
Oh
The road to nowhere

    1. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Kathy!!! Be assured that we greatly appreciate the prayers.

      I was raised in a town where the good Baptists kept dancing down to a bare minimum. We had to hold our senior prom at the America Legion Hall because no dancing was allowed on school property. Yeah, we really were in a "Footloose" situation back then (the '70s).
