My memories tell me stories
Partly lies mostly true
In case that matters much to you.

Tales of failure and of glory.
Songs and sighs
Rocks in shoes
and the paying of the dues

I was standing on the roadside
The world went spinning round
Chasing all the shadows
Going from town to town

Never wore a halo
Or got fitted for a gown
and the time just flew

Spent a long time running
Away from you.

I ain’t much for dreaming.
But you know I had one a time or two
May not look it
But it’s true

Things aren’t always like they’re seeming
Like fortune cookies and tattoos
Freedom and the blues

Well I went up on the mountain
Strolled across the sands
Walked a thousand miles
With a guitar in my hand

As alone I wandered
I’ve found my fellow man
would see me through

Spent a long time running
Looking for you

I never run from trouble
Ask me why I’ll tell you true
Most times walking fast will do

This world is just a bubble
Flying around the cosmic stew
Until our time here’s through

You can drop me in the ocean
hurt me from afar
tell me that my notions
are all floating in the stars

But I know that I’ve found salvation
In an old beat up guitar
And the love of two

Been a long time running
and I ain’t through
