There's a rock in the road and a ditch on the side
And a steep hill that must be climbed
It's a big heavy load and it measures too wide
And a destination that's hard to find

(Chorus: I WILL GET OVER)
But
I will get over
I'll make it there
There just no getting round it, this trouble I bear
I will get over, I'll make it there
'Till I climb up that mountain and breathe heaven's air
I will get over

(Chorus: ROCK IN THE ROAD)
But
I will get over
I'll make it there
'Till I climb up that mountain and breathe heaven's air
I will get over

There's a stop sign ahead and it's slippery when wet
And a detour at every turn
There's a narrowing bridge and a long threatening ridge
And a big-old landslide that bars return

(Chorus: I WILL GET OVER)
But
I will get over
I'll make it there
'Till I climb up that mountain and breathe heaven's air
I will get over
'Till that sweet day I find it and know that I'm there
I will get over

(Chorus: ROCK IN THE ROAD)
But
I will get over
I'll make it there
There's just no getting round it this trouble I bear
I will get over

There's a wreck on the right and it's getting on night
And my headlights, they won't turn on
All the brakes have been worn
And the bumper's been torn
And my pride and patience are all but gone

(Chorus: I WILL GET OVER)
But
I will get over
I'll make it there
'Till I climb up that mountain and breathe heaven's air
I will get over
I'll make it there
'Till I climb up that mountain and breathe heaven's air, ooh
I'm gonna make it
I will get over

(Chorus: ROCK IN THE ROAD)
But
I will get over
I'll make it there
'Till that sweet day I find it and know that I'm there
I will get over
I will get over
