I picked up this ol’ guitar
A couple of years ago,
And just started walking
When I had nowhere to go.
Don’t know where I’m headed,
I don’t wanna join no band,
But I’ll see the end of every road
Before I die, if I can.
Somewhere down this road I’m on,
Someone’s feelin’ just as alone,
And if I sing loud enough,
This could be more than “Just a song.”
Now I seen friends and lovers,
And children all pass away,
I felt like an old man
At the age of 28.
When I get to feelin’ lonely
And wishing for the life I had,
I sit down on the corner,
Strum a while and put out a hat.
I don’t know no “Jesus,”
But if you a prayin’ man,
Put in a good word for me,
Wish God ‘ould help this traveling man.
[very short music break]
Now I aint say all this for pity,
I don’t need nothin’ from you.
But somewhere out there’s someone
Feelin’ like I do.
Somewhere down this road I’m on
Someone’s feeling just as alone,
And if I sing loud enough
This could be more than just another song.
