about

Being on the road can be a "love and hate thing". Most musicians would agree. You are in unfamiliar places that may be sacred to someone but not to you. This is a "traveling song" with a good measure of regret thrown in.

lyrics

Another day gone by; another night spent alone.
Another hazy sky; I'm on the road.
Another unfamiliar sign on somebody else sacred ground.
Baby, I'm just marking time when you're not around.

This is my life, I chose too live.
Hand on the wheel and this guitar.
Singing my songs, it's all I have to give.
God, I hope it takes me far.

But so far...
It''s just taken me away from you.

Another hotel room; another smoky bar.
Another bluesy tune: I'm going far.
Another long long drive; far away from my home.
Baby, I may not survive this being alone.

This is my life, I chose too live.
Hand on the wheel and this guitar.
Singing my songs, it's all I have to give.
God, I hope it takes me far.

But so far...
It''s just taken me away from you.

Every night I sing my songs to a thousand smoky rooms.
Every morning you arise and I'm still not there with you.
And I know you want me home. If I could be, I'd be there too.
It's in my blood, it's in my bones; yes I know we're both alone,
But I must do what I must do...

Another day gone by; another night spent alone.
Another hazy sky; I'm on the road.
Another unfamiliar sign; on somebody else sacred ground.
Baby, I'm just marking time when you're not around.

This is my life; I chose too live.
Hand on the wheel and this guitar.
Singing my songs, it's all I have to give.
God, I hope it takes me far.

But so far...
It's just taken me away from you
