06. What Is The Chance Of That

Somewhere Down The Road
by Amy Grant



 

Tonight I’ve been counting railroad cars • Clinking and grinding into the dark
• One of them passed with an open door • And I pictured myself jumping on
board • What is the chance of that •• Well I’ve always had this thing about trains •
A lonesome sound like a man in pain • Going somewhere they don’t lose track •
Some folks leave and they don’t look back • What is the chance of that
•• I have believed since I was a little bitty girl • That there were rules of cause
and effect • And they slowly shaped my world • But pain and hard times they
come and they go • Like some blindfolded angel somewhere saying • Eeny
Meeny Miny Moe • What is the chance of that ••
Why do I feel restless inside • Maybe I’m part of a wandering tribe • I want
to check my family tree • I think there’s a little nomad in me • What is the
chance of that •• Life is a thing you drink in deep • The journey is hard and the
journey’s sweet • Maybe I’ll search and maybe I’ll find • Things I wanted were
already mine • What is the chance of that
•• I have believed since I was a little bitty girl • That there were rules of cause
and effect • And they slowly shaped my world • But pain and hard times they
come and they go • Like some test of faith that purifies my • Weak belief
into something gold • What is the chance of that

Behind the Song:
“I wrote this song in 1996. I was asking a lot of questions about truth and reality in those last couple of years of my first marriage. With so much uncertainty in my life, music was a safe place to explore the landscape. A lot has changed since then. ...I still like trains.” - Amy Grant
