about

A mash up of the traditional Down the Road, and the song Ease on Down the Road from the Broadway musical and movie, The Wiz. So obvious!

Ease On Down

Every time I get the blues, I walk the soles right off my shoes
Before you hear that rooster crow, you'll see me headed down the road
Down the road, down the road, I've got a pretty baby down the road.
Down the road, down the road, I've got a pretty baby down the road.
Down the road about a mile and a half, slip off down a narrow path.
Jump up and across the rail, dodge it, duck it, follow the trail.
I've got a pretty baby down the road, I’ve got a pretty baby down the road
Down the road, down the road, I’ve got a pretty baby down the road
Down the road, down the road, I’ve got a pretty baby down the road
Down the road, down the road, I’ve got a pretty baby down the road
Down the road, down the road, I’ve got a pretty baby down the road
Ease on down, ease on down the road
Ease on down, ease on down the road
Pick your left foot up, put your right foot down
Come on a-keep moving, don't you lose yr ground
Just keep on Kee-pin' on the road you choose
Don't you give up walking just cause you gave up shoes

Ease on down, Ease on down the road
i got a pretty baby down the road
Ease on down, Ease on down the road
i got a pretty baby down the road

Don’t you carry nothin that might be a load, come on ease on down, ease on down the…

Now anytime you want to know, where I'm headed, down the road
Don't know why I love him so, that man of mine lives down the road
Down the road, down the road, I've got a pretty baby down the road….

Cause there may be times when you think you lost your mind
And the steps you're taking leave you three four steps behind
But the road you're walking might be long sometimes
You just keep on stepping and you'll be just fine

Ease on down, Ease on down the road
i got a pretty baby down the road
Ease on down, Ease on down the road
i got a pretty baby down the road

Down the road down the road I got a pretty baby down the road
Ease on down the road

Don’t you carry nothin that might be a load, come on ease on down, ease on down the road!
