Bob Dylan Endless Highway Lyrics

When they get a scapegoat by the throat,
It's hard labour and cold beans.
If ya can’t get away real quick,
You'll be eatin’ from the poison peanut machine.
Well, I sing by night, wander by day.
I'm on the endless highway,
Dreamin’ of the ocean bay.
With it’s sunsets so bright,
And stars sparkling like jewels in the night.

Ya can get half cra-zy from the summer heat
Or on a frozen road with achin' feet....
Then, like in a mirage I remembered
The greatest story ever told,
About Jesus walk’n down the roughest road.
Clear as day, it’s like I heard Him say,
‘Don’t let your heart slip away
Always be a man of God,
Have faith, and pray’.

You're gonna walk that endless high-way,
Is what God told Moses to say,
Walk that high-way till you die;
Or repent and do things My way.
Better tell that life of sin goodbye;
Come back to Me, I’ll wipe that tear from your eye.
You’ll live in a mansion in the sky
Of heaven’s beautiful atmosphere.
For all eternity You and I will be so near,
My perfect love will cast out fear!
(modern language talk to walk the walk)

Now, I see that detour up ahead;
Don’t wanna make hell my bed.
I’m leav’n my old life far behind.
There’s a cost of livin, price of dyin';
This time I won’t be buyin'....
‘Cause Jesus bought me with His own blood.
Thank You, Lord, for Your great love!
Naked we came into the world, and naked we’ll leave.
Cursed to an eternity of hell
Or home to heaven if we believe.

Well, there is a highway to heaven,
And it’s calling to my heart,
Like for a treasure hid in a field,
I’ll leave everything to depart
Into the most wonderful place
That ever can be
Where I’ll see my Saviour’s Face,
And He’ll look upon me;
Forever happy, forever free!

*Remember, I beseech Thee the word that Thou commandest Thy servant Moses, saying, ‘If ye transgress, I will scatter you abroad among the nations: But if you return unto Me, and keep my commandments, and do them; though there were of you cast out into the uttermost part of heaven,
yet will I gather them from thence, and bring them unto the place that I have chosen to set my name there. Nehemiah 1:8-9

*The kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.” Matthew 13:44
