Water for Elephants the Musical - The Road Don't Make You Young Lyrics


The song is written by PigPen Theatre Co.

Ain't it so [Ain't it so]
The road don't make you young  
Ain't it so [Ain't it so]
The road don't make you young
No, you don't get any prettier  
When you're toiling in the sun
Ain't it so [Ain't it so]
The road don't make you young!

I've been hanging by a thread,
By a wish upon a star  
That the road that I've been forced on
Doesn't go too far
Just far enough
To get me past each day as it comes

Ain't it so -  
Ain't it so?  
The road don't make you young!  

Ain't it so [Ain't it so]
The road don't make you young  
Ain't it so [Ain't it so]
The road don't make you young
Bite off what you can chew
'Fore they take it off of you
Lord knows this old road don't make you young!

I'm searching for the end of day
Hoping to give my weary bones some rest
But the sun shone down heavy as a crown
Giving life but feeling like death
God willing this ain't my last breath...  

There's only one road  
In this god-forsaken life

It winds before it plummets  
From a god-forsaken height
But you're gonna have to walk it  
So you might as well have fun  
Spend the dollar in your pocket
While there's holler in your lungs

See benzini brothers' circus
For a one-night-only run
Ain't it so - the road don't make you young  
Ain't it so, the road don't make you young
Ain't it so, the road don't make you young
Live a life worth living
When they say it can't be done
Ain't it so, the road don't make —
Ain't it so, the road don't make you young
Ain't it so, the road don't make you young
Live a life worth living
When they say it can't be done ain't
It so, the road don't make you young
The road don’t make you young
