SING A TRAVELING SONG


hey little girl with tears in your eyes
don't waste your time now asking me why
I don't know • I know I'll just be moving along
you say that home is where my love is at
I say that home is where I hang my hat
the time has come to sing a traveling song

you want a house and a lot of close friends
I love the feel of my back to the wind
the two won't match • you know to cage the wild would be wrong
you think that love is friends • a child and a home
you can't buy love on a twenty year alone
the time has come to sing a traveling song

someday where we sat in your old porch swing
a tamer man may offer you a ring
a man that wants his friends and neighbors • a child and a home
don't waste your tears on love that never could be
what's right for others just ain't right for me
the time has come to sing a traveling song
