Mark Knopfler - All the road running

Artist. Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris

Title: All the road running

----------------------

A million miles our vagabond wheels

Clocked up beneath the clouds

They`re counting down to show time

When we do it for real with the crowds

Air miles are owing but they don`t come for free

And they don`t give you any for pain

But if it`s all for nothing

All the road running has been in vain

The rim shots come down like cannon fire

And thunder off the wall

There`s a man in every corner

And each one is giving his all

But this is my piper, this is my drum

So you`ll never hear me complain

And if it`s all for nothing

All the road running has been in vain

All the road running

All the road running

Well if you`re inclined to go up on the wall

It can only be fast and high

And those who don`t like the danger soon

Find something different to try

And when there is only a ring in your ears

And an echo down memory lane

Then if it`s all for nothing

All the road running has been in vain

All the road running

All the road running

The show`s packing up, i sit and I watch

The carnival eaving town

There`s no pretending that I`m not a fool

For riding around and around

Like the pictures you keep of your old wall of death

You showed me one time on the plane

But if it`s all for nothing

All the road running,it`s been in vain

I've a million miles of vagabond sky

Clocked up above the clouds

And i`m still your man for the roaming

For as long as there's roaming allowed

There`ll be a rider and there`ll be a wall

As long as the dream remains

And if it`s all for nothing

All the road running it`s been in vain

All the road running

All the road running
