Old man on the corner, singin' my life 
Playin' guitar with a rusty old knife 
And every line that he's singin' rhymes with the truth 
And a promise of something, beyond the blues

You and me, darling, took the long way around 
Through the wide open countries and the heart attack towns 
To every fork in the road, where we've all got to choose 
Between darkness and light out beyond the blues

Beyond the shadows, beyond the rain 
Beyond the darkness and all the pain 
When you're walkin' in circles with holes in your shoes 
Love is the road that leads beyond the blues

Old man on the corner, he's been gone for years 
And the guitar and the knife blade are rusty with tears 
But there's a song that he left us, we'll never lose 
That love is the road that leads beyond the blues
