You take the High Road and I'll take the Low Road

I know gangsters and I know musicians and I know artists and drug addicts and alcoholics and parents and teenagers and publicans and promoters and DJs and bikies and strippers and writers and the most beautiful person I know just works in an office.

When you feel, anything, it's damn impossible sometimes to differentiate between what is right wrong real fake running standing letting it all go...

Right now, the Low Road looks tempting and easy, and the High Road too steep to climb.

Dig deep, find Goaty Super Powers, and most importantly, surround yourself with the right sort of people.

I can't even write today.

  1. I say take the high road, it's not so steep once you start walking it, and you'll probably find someone waiting there to wander through gardens with you.

  2. By yon bonnie banks,
    And by yon bonnie braes,
    Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond,
    Where me and my true love
    Were ever want to gae,
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

    Oh! ye'll take the high road and
    I'll take the low road,
    And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
    But me and my true love
    Will never meet again
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

    'Twas then that we parted
    In yon shady glen,
    On the steep, steep side of Ben Lomond,
    Where in purple hue
    The Highland hills we view,
    And the moon coming out in the gloaming.

    Oh! ye'll take the high road and
    I'll take the low road,
    And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
    But me and my true love
    Will never meet again
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

    The wee birdie sang
    And the wild flowers spring,
    And in sunshine the waters are sleeping,
    But the broken heart it kens
    Nae second Spring again,
    Tho' the waeful may cease frae their greeting.

    Oh! ye'll take the high road and
    I'll take the low road,
    And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
    But me and my true love
    Will never meet again
    On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

  3. The actual saying means this, the low road is actually the road of death, the song was apparently written about two soldiers fighting the english for bonnie prince charlie who were left behind after one of the uprisings. The song is a letter to one of the soldiers sweethearts after he ralises he is to be executed. The other soldier was to be released. The Spirit of the dead soldier traveling by the 'low road' would reach Scotland before his comrade, struggling along the actual road over high, rugged country. So the High road although harder is the one to take.
