About the Song

A musical tour of Arizona's scenic landscape.


Lyrics

Top of the road, top of the road
Travel to the top of the road

Williams to Flagstaff is a beautiful drive
It's the prettiest stretch of the road
Ponderosa pines on red cinder slopes
Will make you wish that this was your home

There's a slow train that goes to the canyon
Ski slopes for those who go fast
Or you can unwind in a beautiful meadow
And watch a herd of elk as they pass

If you're going east at sundown
The San Francisco peaks are a sight
The snow-capped purple mountain majesty
Will creep into your dreams that night

If you drive to the top of the road, top of the road
Travel to the top of the road

When the burdens of the daily grind get heavy
You can really lighten your load
Take that ribbon of highway from Williams to Flagstaff
That stretch I call the top of the road

If your going west at sunrise
You're in for a beautiful sight
Coming down off the mountain you can see forever
In that cool fresh morning light

Top of the road, top of the road
Travel to the top of the road
