I Will Get Over (Rock in the Road**)

I Will Get Over (Rock in the Road)
There’s a rock in the road
And a ditch on the side
And a steep hill that must be climbed
It’s a big heavy load
And it measure’s too wide
And a destination that’s hard to find, but
I will get over
I’ll make it there
There is just no getting around it
No matter how much trouble I bear
I will get over
I’ll make it there
Till I climb up that mountain
And breathe Heaven’s air
I will get over
There’s a stop sign ahead
And it’s slippery when wet
And a detour at every turn
There’s a narrowing bridge
A long threatening ridge
And a big-old landslide
That bars return, but
I will get over
I’ll make it there
Till I climb to the top of that mountain
And I breathe Heaven’s air
I will get over
I’ll make it there
Till that sweet day I find it
And know that I’m there
I will get over
There’s a light out ahead
And my engine’s half dead
On a dangerous winding curve
Tired of fighting off sleep
Still I know I must keep
Pushing onward and up
Without losing my nerve
(Repeat Chorus)
Fog and clouds folding in
Will this road ever end
Could it be that I’ve lost my way
Almost frozen and blind
Driving on till I find
A way through the darkness
To see light of day
(Repeat Chorus)
Till I climb up that mountain
And know that I’m there
Ooooo, I’m gonna make it
I will
Get over
