ROAD TO CAIRO (David Ackles) Julie Driscoll Brian Auger & The Trinity, David Ackles, Howard Jones A fella told me This here road leads to Cairo I got to get me a ride I got to go back Go back to my children I got to see my little bride I been travellin' Gone a long long time Don't know what I'll find Scared of what I'll find But I just got to see them again Hey thanks for stoppin' Are you headed down to Cairo? I wrecked my Lincoln in Saint Jo Why to little old Cairo? No special reason Look up some folks I used to know Me I travel some Have my share of fun Now that's a life a man can live Sure I've played and lost But who minds the cost You got to take more than you give Hey you got another cigar? Son I sure like this car Oh from your daddy as a gift Say on second thought There's gifts I haven't bought Just drop me here Thanks for the lift Yes I've travelled some Yes I've been a bum Never have a dime for gin Left to make my way Told her I can't stay To see my children poor as sin I know this road It leads straight into Cairo Twenty-two miles straight ahead I can't I can't walk down this road to Cairo They're better thinkin' I'm dead I been travellin' Gone a long long time Don't know what I'd find Scared of what I'd find I can't I just can't walk down this road (Contributed by Aemoggs - March 2008)
