Texas Keen’s road goes on forever
like eternal life in three-sixteen.
But after thirty years, one of them
drew blood and left me for dead.
Mighty wheels rock n’ roll on and on.
Thick dust and smoke, cloud the mind.
Farther across this hot barren land
Jesus and Robert Earl pressing on.
Story-tellers, they hope for the best
Mixing their tales with cheap wine
Casting internet pods to pigs in a sty
The prodigal staggers up to the bar.
Slowly a crowd comes up from Houston
to feel salvation’s eternal holy words.
Shiner and Jesus creating quite a buzz
As Robert Earl’s smile flows from the stage.
Sherry screams, “The party never ends!”
And Jesus climbs into her Mercedes Benz
With the crack of the single-shot 410
Full of the Holy Spirit, the road goes on forever.
