“The Road That Brought Us Here” — Songs of Will T. Massey

Will T. Massey — "Slow Study"Another of Will’s early songs from his Chicago House days which he would reprise years later. Originally recorded on his self-released cassette, Slow Study

Don’t go putting on your fancy face.
Leave your lace and your rings.
Darlin’, we ain’t going no place
You’ll be needing those things.
Take a drive down a country road
Paved with good times and tears —
Take my hand now, and off we’ll go
Down the road that brought us here.

There’s the dance hall where we met
And I first felt your kisses.
There’s the old church where we were wed
Against your daddy’s wishes.
But I recall how he smiled at me
When he held our first child near.
There’s so many memories
Down the road that brought us here.

Sometimes it seems to you
We’re worlds apart.
After all that we’ve been through
You could never leave my heart.
Now I might keep ramblin’,
I have to tell you dear —
It’s been a pleasure traveling
Down the road that brought us here.

I have to laugh and thank the Lord above
For helping us to steer.
He kept us rolling on the wheels of love
Down the road that brought us here.

We’ll keep rolling on the wheels of love
Down the road throughout the years.

Will T. Massey & Dave Ducharme-Jones
