RUN TO THE END OF THE HIGHWAY

On this day 28 years ago, singer-songwriter Keith Green was killed in plane crash

UNTYPICAL CHRISTIAN. Keith Green was so untypical as a Christian and musician. He was radical. He resisted the Christian music industry. He gave his records away. He held free concert and just passed an offering plate. His music was alive with passion for Jesus and reaching others with God's love. He was only 28 when he died in a plane crash on July 28, 1982. His music lives. I sing it all the time. It has been a motivation and comfort for me at various times. Thankful for his witness and shared gifts. Here are the lyrics to "Run to the End of the Highway."

Well you can run to the end of the highway and not find what you're looking for,
Moving won't make your troubles disappear.
And you can search to the end of the highway and come back no better than before.
To find yourself you've got to start right here.

Well I came running when I got the news that you were leaving.
Oh, I've gotta talk some sense to you, cause I'm your friend.
You say you want to hit the road cause life is so deceiving.
Do you think it's different at the other end?

So you can run to the end of the highway and not find what you're looking for.
Moving won't make your troubles disappear.
And you can search to the end of the highway and come back no better than before.
To find yourself you've got to start right here.

Oh I came running when I got the news that you were crying.
Oh my friend has life been so unkind to you?
You say you want to find a place where people are not lying.
If you find a place like that I'll go there too.

Oh, you can run to the end of the highway and not find what you're looking for.
Moving won't make your troubles disappear.
And you can search to the end of the highway and come back no better than before.
To find yourself you've got to start right here.
Yes, to find yourself, you've got to start right here.
