Lyrics

Travelling Man

Written By: Lee Brown

Walking down a long and lonesome road,
My whole world's in my bag it's not a heavy load,
Another day,another town,they're all the same to me;
Faceless people pass me by,
I wonder what they see.

Met a New York banker on the road just yesterday,
Fear was in his eyes he was runnin' away;
He had the world but wanted more,
Greed was his disease,
The markets crashed and hit the floor,
Now the road is his release.

Sometimes I think it's time I settled down,
'Cos I'm sure I've covered every inch of ground,
From Seattle to Miami, San Jose to Bangor Maine and Denver Colorado's where they threw me off'v that train.
CHORUS
I got itchy feet and a restless frame of mind,
Gotta keep movin' never know just what I'll find,
All that Wall street stuff don't mean a thing to me,
I'm a travellin' man and it's all I'll ever be.

When I hear a lonesome whistle blow and a guard shout all aboard,
Or on a desert highway when a beaten up old Ford,
Pulls up for me an' the driver sez,You know where this road goes,
I say,yeah it goes to where I'm goin',
Where the green grass grows, Where the green grass grows.

I can't explain the feeling of a Rocky Mountain night,
A million stars so close that you can touch and steal their light;
The fall up in New England or a snowfall in St Paul,
Sights and sound to lift your heart an' man I've seen them all, man I've seen them all.
CH. then repeat.
