Road to Eden – Julie Matthews
From the album ‘Lies and Alibis’ Pat Shaw and Julie Matthews


I know I’m gonna die if I don’t leave here
It’s like thunder in my head
I want cool clear water
I’ve got dust and dirt instead
And all that I keep thinking about
As I’m walking through the rain
If I ever get a ticket out
I’m never coming back again

One day soon I’m gonna find my road to Eden
I’m gonna walk in the sun
And smell the sweet scent of freedom
Oh! Oh! One day soon

I can see green hills just around the bend
And I can smell a garden of roses
Scented in the wind
And I can almost feel the cool clear water
River rolling past my gate
And any day now
River gonna carry me away

One day soon I’m gonna find my road to Eden
I’m gonna walk in the sun
And smell the sweet scent of freedom
Oh! Oh! One day soon
