A young woman stands by the side of the road,
She ain't got no money, ain't got no soul,
She's looking for an answer ain't never been found
It isn't something prophetic, isn't something profound
She'll keep up her spirits with the company of men
She don't care for morals or worry about sin
Just keep on traveling  down that old dirt road
Recover what she's been owed.

These are the summer days of lightning
These  are the autumn nights of rain
If only the sun could keep on shining
Just come and chase away the pain
 
Trouble can find you wherever you are
But it's when you're not looking that you know it ain't far
It lurks in the shadows like a call in the night
It is keenly observant and about to take flight
The best you can hope for is a light in the dusk
A collection of comforts a bastion of trust
But beware of the woman on the side of the road
She ain't got no money, ain't got no soul..

These are the summer days of lightning
These  are the autumn nights of rain
If only the sun could keep on shining
Just come and chase away the pain
