[Verse 1]
Ev’ry road thro’ life is a long long road.
Fill’d with joys and sorrows, too
As you journey on how your heart will yearn
For the things most dear to you.
With wealth and love ‘tis so,
But onward we must go.

[Verse 2]
With a big stout heart to a long steep hill
We may get there with a smile,
With a good kind thought and an end in view
We may cut short many a mile
So let courage ev’ry day
Be your guiding star alway. [Chorus]
Keep right on to the end of the road
Keep right onto the end
Tho’ the way be long let your heart be strong,
Keep right on round the bend.
Tho’ you’re tired and weary
Still journey on till you come to your happy abode,
Where all you love you’ve been dreaming of
Will be there at the end of the road. road.
