(Road To Cairo Lyrics on http://www.lyricsmania.com/)

A fella told me
This here road leads to Cairo
I got to get me a ride
I got to go back
Go back to my children
I got to see my little bride

I been travellin'
Gone a long long time
Don't know what I'll find
Scared of what I'll find
But I just got to see them again

Hey thanks for stoppin'
Are you headed down to Cairo?
I wrecked my Lincoln in Saint Jo
Why to little old Cairo?
No special reason
Look up some folks I used to know

Me I travel some
Have my share of fun
Now that's a life a man can live
Sure I've played and lost
But who minds the cost
You got to take more than you give

Hey you got another cigar?
Son I sure like this car
Oh from your daddy as a gift
Say on second thought
There's gifts I haven't bought
Just drop me here
Thanks for the lift

Yes I've travelled some
Yes I've been a bum
Never have a dime for gin
Left to make my way
Told her I can't stay
To see my children poor as sin

I know this road
It leads straight into Cairo
Twenty-two miles straight ahead
I can't I can't walk down this road to Cairo
They're better thinkin' I'm dead

I been travellin'
Gone a long long time
Don't know what I'd find
Scared of what I'd find
I can't I just can't walk down this road.

Great post! I'm a long-time fan of Brian & he is one artist I din't like to see shared 'cos he's still a hard workin' musician who's selling most of his back catalogue via his website.
However, a sampler such as this 'aint harming no-one & is a great little bit of promotion for a great artist. Those French TV clips are ace too! Viva La YouTube! Here's s whole lotta Brian Auger scans for anyone interested.

Huge thanks for sharing 'The Road To Cairo' single, most appreciated! What is interesting is the fact the Youtube video you posted is a slightly different version that I have never heard before...the video itself is amazing and the guy that posted it also has a few more Julie Driscoll & Brian Auger videos including a most tripped out version of 'Season Of The Witch' which is well worth watching.

I would just like to agree with the previous poster, blogs like this encourage record sales as there is a whole generation of bloggers and readers eager to learn about music like this...also it is important to remember that just as the map is not the territory, the menu is not the meal and the MP3 is not the record!!!
