Lyrics:

WATCH OUT FOR FALLING ROCKS

. Chapman Alden

Graduation day my Daddy gave me some wheels
He handed me the keys and said, Son, now here's the deal:
There's a promise that my old man had me make
Not too heavy on the gas - and don't forget the brake

You gotta watch out for falling rocks
when you're on the road of life
You're starting on your journey
be ready for sudden slides
You never know what's coming down
when the road plays lost and found
It could be rainbows or road blocks
You better watch out for falling rocks!

At 19 I fell in love with the prettiest girl at work
Then one day she dumped me and oh man, how it hurt
Dad said, She's just a bump in the road, your heart will mend
Where she came from there's plenty more waiting just around the bend

You gotta watch out for falling rocks
when you're on the road of life
You're starting on your journey
be ready for sudden slides
You never know what's coming down
when the road plays lost and found
It could be rainbows or road blocks
You better watch out for falling rocks

I got married and we had a son, he's more trouble every day
He's thirteen going on thirty, turning my hair gray
Daddy's gone up to be with Mom, that's where he wants to be
Now when I go to guide the boy his Granddaddy speaks through me

You gotta watch out for falling rocks
when you're on the road of life
You're starting on your journey
be ready for sudden slides
You never know what's coming down
when the road plays lost and found
It could be rainbows or road blocks
You better watch out for falling rocks
