Love At The End Of The Road (Sharp Kevin)

The farm was still standing at the end of the road And the mailbox still carried our name In spite of the dust and the weeds and the dust The old place looked almost the same The screen door was slamming real slow in the wind Like it did 'bout this time each November Like someone applauding the end of a dream That no one could seem to remember When she came around from the side of the house She looked likde the day we first met And before I could speak she was there in my arms Sayin?something I'll never forget She said, I knew you'd come back My heart told me so Men like you search every corner on earth When there's love here at the end of the road It was hard to believe he was 71 The way that he still got around His station was still full service, by gosh And he'd fixed every car in this town I stood in the door and saw nothin?had changed That stubborn old son-of-a-gun Not the clock on the wall not the soda machine Or the sign that said, "Miller & Son" He said, I knew you'd come back My heart told me so Men like you search every corner on earth When there's love here at the end of the road The roof needed mending and the walls needed paint But the stained glass still gave them a glow I couldn't bear one more unanswered prayer So I turned and I started to go Then I heard a voice from the back of the room That would make any sinner believe And the words that He spoke they went right to my soul And brought me right down to my knees She said, I knew you'd come back My heart told me so Men like you search every corner on earth When there's love here at the end of the road
