Lyrics

Roll With The Times

Written By: Tumbleweed Wanderers

You gotta roll with times
You gotta stay in line
This ain’t sixty nine
You gotta change your mind
Change your mind

Well I don’t wanna be a soldier
Fighting your war
When I was young
I thought the truth would come
But now I’m here
without a clue

I was yearning for adventure
And this town seemed so dull
Couldn’t get a job
had to start anew
Don’t know where
but I had to go

You gotta roll with times
You gotta stay in line
This ain’t sixty nine
You gotta change your mind
change your mind

Well it’s been ten years now
With no end in sight
Could travel the world
leave everything behind
But there’s still one thing
on my mind

Don’t wanna be a soldier
That’s for sure
And what’s it like
not to be at war?
Cause I don’t remember anymore

You gotta roll with times
You gotta stay in line
This ain’t sixty nine
You gotta change your mind
change your mind

Take It Back

Written By: Tumbleweed Wanderers

feel me please
oh baby just like you
used to do
before we placed the blame
the game, the shame
oh how long will it last
before no more
and we forget the past?

oh you know
you’re only chasing your shadow
the past the grass
it’s always greener
than when you were there
the air was so sour
every minute
felt like an hour

Don’t tell me
what I wanna hear
well It can’t be that bad
from you my dear

Come with me you see
You’re only waging war
for sport, in short
I propose a truce
to loosen up this noose
around my neck
you took my heart
But I’m gonna take it back

Don’t tell me
what I wanna hear
Well It can’t be that bad
from you my dear

So Long Blues

Written By: Tumbleweed Wanderers

Oh I’ve been trying to end this day
Oh I’ve been trying to get away
This day’s been long and I am sure
That I can’t take this anymore
It’s time for me to get along
And then I’ll sing a freedom song

So, so long
So, so long

By and by, I join the road
Goodbye, goodbye, my heavy load
Goodbye, goodbye, my dearest friends
Come with me now or here it ends

So, so long
So, so long

Oh mother please don’t be so sad
The coming years won’t be so bad
I know I say this every fall
But every time I stop and stall
I never leave but you should know
I really would if I could go

So, so long
So, so long

Oh Freedom
Please come
Lonesome
Freedom

Oh Freedom
Please come
Lonesome
Freedom

Hard Times

Written By: Tumbleweed Wanderers

Hard times behind us
And hard times up ahead
You’re fifty-two my friend
And that’s a far cry from dead
that’s a far cry from dead

Don’t know no horoscopes
can’t grant no guarantees
The winds come and go
and take you where they please
They’ll bring you to your knees

A friend once told me
We create everything
To say you’re powerless
You’re living in a dream
We’re living in a dream

Tired of Wandering

Written By: Tumbleweed Wanderers

I got so much love
to give you
In my eyes
you can do no wrong
In my eyes
you can do no wrong

I don’t want no drugs
I just want you
You and your love

But you say it can’t be
So I wander aimlessly
Well I’m tired of wandering
And I’m tired of wondering
And I’m tired of yearning
And I’m tired of hurting
So love me
Or leave me be

So you see
All I want
Is your joy
But I will never be your fool
Yeah I will never be your fool
