Dolly Parton Paradise Road Lyrics

Last updated: 03/03/2005 10:00:00 AM

I grew up dirty and I grew up poor the wolf didn't even hang round our door
Not a crumb to spare and the cupboard bare
And I had the gift of imagination I could change my situation
Anytime I choose I could always go down Paradise Road
I found a kingdom deep within a place dream and to pretend
And to prepare for the world out there
A dream can dress you when you're ragged fill you up when hunger's naggin'
I warmed my soul when life was cold on Paradise Road

Paradise is a state of mind the sun shines warm and all the time
And the rain don't flow and the wind don't blow on Paradise Road
A place no one can take from me a place of everlasting peace
Where dreamers go it's never closed Paradise Road
[ mandolin ]
Paradise is a state of mind down the road of life and time
And the friends we meet make the travling sweet on Paradise Road
Sometimes now when the world is mad I find that place I've always had
Inside my soul it's paved in gold Paradise Road

I grew up dirty and I grew up poor the wolf didn't even hang round our door
Not a crumb to spare and the cupboard bare
But I had the gift of imagination I could change my situation
Anytime I choose I could always go down Paradise Road
Paradise Road Paradise Road down Paradise Road Paradise Road
