about

"High Road" is a protest song that was written as a bluegrass romp by Tom around 2012, but when the demo was brought to the "Friday" sessions it quickly evolved into a harder rock anthem.

Tom Ingersoll and Robby Baier share writing credits on this one.

lyrics

I'm gonna take the high road
Where’d it all go?
We don’t got another chance to blow
To make it all right
Gonna take the high road
Don’t say you don’t know
Holdin’ to the golden code
We gotta take it to the light

Why can’t we all just get along?
Something said by a man who now is gone
Not too much to ask if you’re askin’ me
Now let me ask you: what’s it gonna be?
I’m not likin’ what I hear
Words of hate, ignorance and fear
Politicians, I hear a lotta talk

They got to learn to listen
They got to do the walk

Gonna take the high road
Where’d it all go
We don’t got another chance to blow
To get it all right
Gonna take the high road
Don’t say you don’t know
Holdin’ to the Golden Code
We gotta take it to the light

Hear it knocking at your door
Let’s come together like we’ve done before
Your bleedin’ heart it’s gonna get hurt
It takes a lotta guts to do this work
Hope that time is on our side
Got to believe that love will turn that tide
Take it to the streets and
Write it on the walls
Ain’t nothing ever got big
That didn’t start small

Gonna take the high road
Where’d it all go?
We don’t got another chance to blow
To make it all right
Gonna take the high road
Don’t say you don’t know
Holdin’ to the golden code
We gotta take it to the light

Turn off your TV and make it fast

It’s time to take your head out of your …
The revolution’s now, don’t let it pass
Break through the glass

Gonna take the high road
Where’d it all go?
We don’t got another chance to blow
To make it all right
Gonna take that high road
Don’t say you don’t know
Holdin’ to the golden code
Were gonna take it to the light

We got to take that high road
Where’d it all go?
We don’t got another chance to blow
To make it all right
Gonna take that high road
Don’t say you don’t know
Holdin’ to the golden code
We gotta take it to the light

I said we’re holdin’ to the golden code
And take it to the light
Yes we’re gonna hold it to the golden code
And make it all right
