  The Times They Are a-Changin' session 3, Columbia Studio A, NYC - 12.aug.1963  

The trail is dark an' dusty
They road it's kinda of rough
But the better roads are waitin'
An' boys it ain't far off.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk.

I walked down to the valley
I turned my head up high
I've seen that silver linin'
That was hangin' in the sky.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk.

The evenin' dusk was rollin'
I's walkin' down the track
There's a one way wind a-blowin'
It was blowin' at my back.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk.

The gravel road is bumpy
It's a hard old road to ride
But the clearer roads are yonder
With the cinders on the side.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk.

The mornin' train was rollin'
The hummin' of its wheels
Told me of a new day
Comin' across the fields.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk.  up

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
I shall walk.

The trail is dusty
They road it might be rough
But the better roads a-waitin'
An' boys it ain't far off.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk.

I walked down by the river
I turned my head up high
I've seen that silver linin'
That was hangin' in the sky.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk.

The evenin' dusk was rollin'
I was walkin' down the track
There was a one way wind a-blowin'
It was blowin' at my back.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk.

The gravel road is bumpy
It's a hard road to ride
But there's a clearer road a-waitin'
With the cinders on the side.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk.

That evenin' train was rollin'
The hummin' of its wheels
My eyes they saw a better day
As i looked out across the fields.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
We shall walk.

The trail is dusty
They road it might be rough
But the ggod roads is a-waitin'
An' boys it ain't far off.

Trails of troubles
Roads of battles
Paths of victory
I shall walk.  up
