lyrics

gravenstein same old scene at the drama
you cut someone down run out of town back to mama
but there's a girl who knows the route you go
we'll head you off now
where mill station ends
and the dirt road begins
see you there pal

you take the high road
it's waiting there for you

gravenstein you've come to be like your namesake
perfect and sweet for a late summer week
then fall to heartache
but your destiny's not set like that tree
change the course now
finish the song
right the wrong
you can learn how

you take the high road
it's waiting there for you

there's a girl down in Graton
wronged and forsaken
by my brother
no I couldn't watch
as he auctioned it off
to another
but there's a gravity to this mess he flew
and he'll come back now
Gravenstein you're not a bad seed
I'll show you how

you take the high road
make sure your words are true
there'll be a few friends left at the end
waiting there for you
