lyrics

Gravel scattered, patches of dead grass
Once spanned across this mountain pass
But they gathered up their goods and they gathered up their maps
And the road was made by walking it

Coyotes crying, hiding in the desert shade
Rocks that cut like a razor blade
Burning backs baked by relentless rays
And the road was made by walking it

The task to make a passage
Was a lengthy feat
Countless miles swept by
Countless feet
A millennium or ten
Until it was complete
And the road was made by walking it

The strength to stand upright
With forward-facing eyes
Smashing stones turned
To enterprise
And passing what they favored
Down throughout time
The road was made by walking it

You'll find it in our bloodlines
Right in our ancestry
Tie your laces, brace the weather
Can't we walk this road together?
Our solitary purpose
Our common cause is this:
Persist, persist

Gravel scattered, patches of dead grass
Once spanned across this mountain pass
But they gathered up together
And they made a pact
And the road was made by walking it

And now you find yourself
With two broken feet
Days of isolation and misery
I will carry you until my
Arms grow weak
'Cause we make the road
We make the road

You'll find it in our bloodlines
Right in our ancestry
The fearless stride of those we follow
Won't you walk this road with me?
Our solitary purpose
Our common cause is this:
Persist, persist
