The Road Goes On Forever (5:06)

An absolutely fantastic story/song. The tale of waitress Sherry and Sonny - the loner - who meet up and go on the road - "The road goes on forever and the party never ends".
Finally they end up robbing some drug dealers and the cops arrive on the scene and Sherry shoots one and then....aw, you'll have to listen to the song to find that out!


Sherry was a waitress at the only joint in town
She had a reputation as a girl who'd been around
Down Main Street after midnight with a brand new pack of ciggs
A fresh one hangin' from her lips and a beer between her legs
