lyrics

I went down to the end of the road and I left my heavy load, but I’m gonna come back for it someday. And I’m gonna make sure it’s there. But, I left my heavy load down there. ‘Cause it’s treason to carry a load like that but it’s treason to let it go. So, I’m gonna come back for it someday. And, I’m gonna make sure it’s there. But, I left my heavy load down there. Say it once and say it twice, I need to hear your okay voice telling me it’s okay, “run, and get out of here.”

Well, you laced it up on my back real tight when I was just a little thing. So, I grew up strong under the weight so heavy. You said, “Girl, this has been passed way down, way down now. From generation to generation. And, it was mine and it’s yours so get used to the feeling of heavy.” Say it once and say it twice, I need to hear my okay voice say, “it’s okay, go on run, and get out of here.” Go, you’re free. Go play. Get out of here now. You’re free, go play. We’re done here you’re going out to play.
