Rural roads in many states are either made of dirt or some grade of gravel. They require one’s utmost attention when being traversed and in these areas, one considers themselves fortunate if they happen to live along a rare ‘hard road.’
The Hard Road
Up on the hard road that crosses county line,
out where the hills turn to sand,
the wind whistles eerily all through the pine
up on the hard road that crosses county line.
Drifts of sand are left behind
as the wind blows mightily ‘cross the land
Up on the hard road that crosses county line
Out where the hills turn to sand.
