THE MIDDLE WAY

The inescapable conclusion from all this must surely be that our interdependence, bringing us together into a common equation, across the oceans and the continents, demands that we all combine to launch a global offensive for development, prosperity and human survival. Nelson Mandela January 31, 1991.

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

 
 

The trail is dusty
And my road it might be rough,
But the better roads are waiting
And 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 saw 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 walking down the track.
There was a one-way
wind a-blowin’
And 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 evening train was rollin’,
The hummin’ of its wheels,
My eyes they saw a better day
As I looked across the fields.

 

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

 

The trail is dusty,
The road it might be rough,
But the good road is a-waitin’
And boys it ain’t far off.

 

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

 

Bob Dylan
