Never Tire Of The Road

 

Lyrics

Alternative Last Verse:

Don’t let them ever fool you or take you by surprise
That dirty smell of the politician and the man with the greed in his eyes
Woody might be dead & gone
But the words he wrote they still live on
May his spirit ever shine upon
The cause that never dies

By Andy Irvine

“Never Tire of the Road”, Irvine’s tribute to his lifelong hero, Woody Guthrie. In this updated version, Irvine included the chorus from a song Guthrie recorded in March 1944: “You Fascists Are Bound to Lose”.

This has become one of Andy’s signature songs. Jimmy Longhi and Cisco [Houston] were fellow folksingers who travelled with Woody.
