The Way is a song written by the band, Fastball.

It is included in their second album All the pain money can buy which was released in 1998.


What is the story behind this song?

An old married couple , Lela and Reymond Howard from Salado,  Texas,in June 28, 1997 were driving to the Pioneer Days Festival.Some say that she had Alzheimer’s disease and he was recovering from  brain injury. Strange enough the couple disappears and their children could not find them.The couple got disoriented and drove off a ravine near Hot Springs Arkansas. The car was discovered hidden by dense brush after a wrenching two-week search.


Tony Scalzo, the band’s bassist  was the one to come up with the dea of the song after reading the articles about the couple.
