I’m draggin my heels but my feet are on the ground
Walking for miles a day but nowhere to be found
Like a shadow I’ve been searching for a light to guide the road ahead
Lingering on all the words that dying fella said

Brush the dust from off my boots it’s time to walk the line
I built this aspiration somewhere in my mind
Like a fish in a reservoir no rivers to the sea
Circling past the same old shores in search of destiny

I was born in a little big city these rivers are my veins
Where they take me I’ll never know I’ll never feel the pain
Cos I know that I’ll be back again I know I will return
Everything I’ve seen along the way is what I’ve earned

At night I pour myself a drink and think back to the times
I thought about a better world than the one I left behind
When I traded my queen I was hoping for an ace
But I got dealt the joker and she robbed me of my place

Broken shattered spirits of humble simple man
Who thought he had his destiny mapped out within his hand
With every winding river bend the torrent waters run
He docked his boat upon the shore and headed to the sun
