Off Rogers Road


Off Rogers Road Lyrics

Fill the truck and a thermos, head for exit 202

Cooler packed for three days, time to unpack me & you
Drivin’ right through Fairview, population 1205
Nothing but a fruit stand, to tell us we’ve arrived
Off Rogers road



CHORUS:

Where Sonny drank his first beer

And Daddy drank his last
Off Rogers Road

Where we try to steal the moments
Between the future and the past

Off Rogers Road

Like a dirt road straight to heaven about 3 hours north

I’d almost swear the pearly gates are right off that front porch
Little cabin in the woods--a campfire after dark
A two track country pathway there to calm my busy heart
Off Rogers road

CHORUS:

Where the city lights are too dim
To muddy up the stars
Off Rogers Road

Ain’t no sound but crickets and
Sometimes this old guitar

Off Rogers Road


BRIDGE:

November winds are blowing

Got our rifles sighted in

I brush the leaves off Daddy's grave

And leave a cold one there for him
Off Rogers road



CHORUS:

Where Sonny drank his first beer

And Daddy drank his last
Off Rogers Road

Where we don’t bring our worries
And we don’t move too fast
Off Rogers Road
Off Rogers road

CHORUS:
Like a dirt road straight to heaven
About 3 hours north
I’d almost swear those pearly gates are right off that front porch

    Fantastic song. Those of us that know and love the area thank you for creating an awesome tribute to our little part of the world. Our place is just east of Rogers Road at Crooked Lake. We love it too. Good work. That’s so much for a great song!

    I grew up on the farm with the big chicken house on Rogers road. So many families stopped at our farm to get water for their cabins. Your song brought back a lot of memories.

    Really enjoyed listening to that song. My grandma and grandpa lived north of that on oaks Rd. When I was a kid we would gather sap right down from there. Great memories. We went sledding down that road in the winter. I always wanted to get out of that little town but now I love going back. Thanks for that song. Great job.

    Wow!! What a nice surprise to hear this song. I grew up on Rogers road. We lived at the end of Mast Road, just past Schrock’s Dairy Farm. We had to drive down Roger’s road to get to Mast Road, and to get out to M-72 I attended Fairview School all of K-12. Most of my family is still in Fairview today. We were barely a place in the map, so to hear this song is so nostalgic. I enjoyed it very much! Thank you!
