"A Fork in the Road" is a 1965 Motown song recorded by American R&B singing group The Miracles, and written by Miracles members Smokey Robinson, Pete Moore, and Ronnie White, on Motown Records' Tamla subsidiary label. (T54118) This song was included as the closing track on the Miracles' 1965 studio LP, Going to a Go-Go, and was also released as the B-side of their million-selling Grammy Hall of Fame hit single, "The Tracks of My Tears". Though this original version never charted nationally, it was a strong regional hit in many areas of the country and a popular part of the Miracles' live show.
Nineteen years later, American singer Rebbie Jackson recorded a cover of the song for her debut album, Centipede. Jackson's cover was released as a single, and peaked at number 40 on the R&B chart.
The Miracles' 2002 CD re-release of the Going To A Go Go/Away We A Go Go albums features a never-before released live version of "A Fork in the Road", delivered to an enthusiastic audience response.
