(There’s A) Big Rock in the Road

By Fred Rose

There’s a big rock in the road and it’s there blockin’ the road
Lots of careless folks have found it so you better get around it
There’s a big rock in the road. 

There’s a hole under the rock and its cold under the rock
And they say if you fall in that your life won’t last a minute
There’s a big rock in the road. 

Leave the darkness behind you, shine your light up ahead
If you don’t want trouble to find you change the life that you led
There’s a big rock in the road. 

And it’s there blockin’ the road so if you’re not very humble
Then you’re liable to stumble on the big rock in the road. 

There’s a big rock in the road and it’s there blockin’ the road,
If it’s happiness you’re seekin’ when you’re tempted don’t you weaken
There’s a big rock in the road. 

There’s a hole under the rock and there’s hard luck in that hole
It’s the basement of the devil and he’s waitin’ with a shovel
There’s a rock in the road. 

Leave the darkness behind you, shine your light up ahead,
If you don’t want trouble to find you change the life that you led
There’s a big rock in the road. 

And it’s there blockin’ the road if you favor shady deallin’
Then you better do some kneelin’
There’s a big rock in the road.
