Dew drops on my window. Falling down like drops of rain.
I get up. Try and start my day.
Searching for my blue jeans left over from the night before
I put them on one leg at at time
An empty pack of cigarettes lying on the bedroom floor
A box of matches hanging out the side
Where’d I put my truck keys, I find ‘em hanging from the dash
I climb on in and take her for a ride

Cause I’ve got a lead foot with nowhere to go
Driving myself crazy, going with the flow
I’m treading water, I keep on going under.
Looking for the map to where life goes
Searching for the answers nobody knows
For now I’ll keep chasing my dreams, the only way I know…
Maybe I’ll pack a suitcase, take half of everything I own
And point my wheels for the west coast
Or I could talk this guitar, turn that pickup on around
Plant my roots somewhere in Tennessee.

I could make the border by morning, see the sunrise in my rear view
On a cup of coffee, half a tank of gas.
Call the family from a pay phone. Tell them that I’m long gone
But, not to worry. They won’t miss a thing.
