The Garden of Forking Paths Lyrics

Rick Miller
This garden leads to forking paths
Where each mistake will take you back.
The signs ahead are overgrown
Which way to turn? The path unknown.

Though man he plans and God he laughs
A choice is made, can't take it back.
The signs ahead are overgrown
This forking path won't take you home.

If I should choose this path today, is my fortune told?
Do other futures still exist for paths as yet unknown?

Time winds on, life's a garden of forking paths,
Life goes on, choose your future the past is gone.
