Rustic Riders: Music

Walk This Road

(Rustic Riders)

I wrote this in 2006 as the 2008 presidential cycle was gearing up. It was my hope for civil discourse. I thought when the election was over I would not be singing this song. We continue to end all our shows with it.

Chorus:
We will walk this road together; We will walk hand in hand
We will walk this road together; We will walk throughout the land
We will walk this road together even when we disagree
We will walk this road together from sea to shining sea

When I read the paper; When I watch TV
Listen to the radio; It’s really plain to see
When leaders stir up hatred; When they feed divisiveness
They really aren’t leaders; We have to stop this mess

Chorus:


There really is no red; There really is no blue
You and I are people; We’re bound to see this through
We are more than the labels; That we learn in school
We care for one another; We live the Golden Rule

Chorus:

We are Native People; We are Muslim and Hindu
We are Protestant and Catholic; We are Quaker and we’re Jew
We are evangelical; Searching for the way
To live our lives together; Forever in God’s sway

Chorus:
