Lyrics

Susie was a pearl of a woman
Jack was a golden man
She told him she'd love him forever
He gave her a wedding band
Their parents said they were just children
Love comes just as fast at leaves
They think that they've built a foundation
Until life knocks them down with a breeze
Living comes natural to many
Love comes natural to few
You take the high road to freedom
I'll take the low road to you
Jack bought a brand new tractor
The bank him the land
Said the work may be hard but it's honest
I'll pay them by May if I can
Sometimes they talk about children
Names and things that they'll do
If it's a girl, we'll call her JoAnna
She'll grow up to be just like you
Living comes natural to many
Love comes natural to few
You take the high road to freedom
I'll take the low road to you
Jack was out plowing the sound end
Trying to beat the next rain
Susie she'd watch through the window
As a downpoar finally came
He was riding the side of the terrace
When the mud gave way to the wheels
Tractor tipped over on Jack
And the cold was all he could feel
Susie ran off to the rain storm
Through her arms around her true love
Her tears were lost in the water
Mixed in a puddle of blood
He told his little wife not worry
He said the soft ground has broken my fall
He told her he'd love her forver
And he didn't say nothing at all
Susie grew old and gray headed
She never did marry again
Jack took the high road to freedom
She took the low road to him
Living comes natural to many
Love comes natural to few
You take the high road to freedom
I'll take the low road to you
