God on the road with Dixie

My friends all round me
Are treading their roads
By cracking their paces
Or shedding some load,
But I, I could never follow
No I, I could never follow

Maybe someday, someday I’m going to settle down
But God’s always shown the way somehow
By taking the long way
Taking the long way round,
Taking the long way
Taking the long way round

Well, I tussle with myself
And God meets me there
In the fray and the struggle
Like an action prayer, 
But I, I could maybe follow
Oh I, I could maybe follow

Hey, I never seem to do it like anyone else
Maybe that’s God’s calling
Not to settle down
But to keep on searching till redemption’s found
Taking the long way
Taking the long way round
Taking the long way
Taking the long way round.
