Behind the Song

Andy: This started out as a sketch I wrote about a move I had made out to Colorado many years ago. The sketch became a song about losing and starting over again, and a tribute to a time, a place, and the people who helped me learn to turn things around for the better. About keeping the faith – and your sense of humor – even when plans change.

Lyrics

At the Fork in the Road
©Andy May

Snow could fall in mid-September, I look back and I remember
All the things that old town meant to me
At first I struggled to survive, but I was never more alive
Those were times I’d never felt so free

Chorus:
So I guess it was a pretty good place for me to fall …flat on my face
At the fork in the road, the fork in the road, the fork in the road, the fork in the road

I moved out there with good intentions, best-laid plans, but let me mention
The road abruptly stopped when bridges burned
Those folks taught me about living, that town taught me about giving
Not worrying much about getting in return

Chorus

Bridge:
They say what goes around comes around
I found it out in that old town
You think you’ve lost, then you find you’re winning
Come out ahead with a new beginning

Chorus

Tag:
At the fork in the road, the fork in the road, the fork in the road, the fork in the road
