Traveling The Highway Home

Going toward the sunset of time
Travelin' the highway home
This world of sin I'm leaving behind
Travelin' the highway home.

Chorus:
Travelin' the highway home
Travelin' the highway home
So narrow the way, thank God I can say
I'm travelin' the highway home.

Old Satan said that I'd never be
Travelin' the highway home
When I resisted he had to flee
And I'm travelin' the highway home.

Chorus:
Sometimes the road seems weary and long
Travelin' the highway home
But in my heart there's always a song
Travelin' the highway home.

Chorus:
Jesus has set up a marker for me
I'm travelin' the highway home
They're all in the Bible and plain as can be
And I'm travelin' the highway home.

(From: HERE.

Molly O'Days version

Traveling The Highway Home
Recorded by: Molly O'Day
Writers: Walter Bailes & Frankie Bailes

Going toward the sunset of time
Travelin' the highway home
Leavin' this world, all sin far behind
Travelin' the highway home.

Chorus:
Travelin' the highway home
Travelin' the highway home
So narrow the way, thank God I can say
I'm travelin' the highway home.

Old Satan said that I'd never be
Travelin' the highway home
When I resisted, he had to flee
I'm travelin' the highway home.

Chorus:

Sometimes the road seems weary and long
Travelin' the highway home
But in my heart there's always a song
Travelin' the highway home.

Chorus:

Note. Last verse not on Molly's recording.

Jesus has set up a marker for me
I'm travelin' the highway home
They're all in the Bible and plain as can be
And I'm travelin' the highway home.
