lyrics

A Tar Road
There's a great migration coming from the east
The birthplace of civilisation is dying on its knees
They cross the blackest waves and there's still some way to travel
Lord give them a week of tar in a lonely year of gravel

Lord give them a tar road, cause it's easier on the soles than a gravel road

Like the failed assimilation to settle the travelling people
Denied them there ethnicity we'd preserve all things being equal
Wandering underneath the stars, when the winters they were hard
When we sent them down the gravel road, they would pray for a stretch of tar, they would pray

Lord give them a tar road, cause it's easier on the soles than a gravel road


I met a little stranger on a lonely gravel road
She had love & sadness in her eyes, for her bloodline had run cold
But she became out lifeboat, brought us cross treacherous waters
Every wrong foot we ever put was a stone road to our daughter

Lord give them a tar road, for it's easier on the soles than a gravel road
