A song about a Traveler

I am just traveler
A roamer of these roads
Searching for a sunset
That could turn my heart to gold
I don't need a reason
To put my mind at ease
Left my heart in Memphis
So it won't bother me

I was once a young man
I was once naïve
I once had a day job
where they treated us like thieves
but I traded it for something
Of unimaginable wealth
then I lost it in card game
to a lousy hand I dealt

I have not forgotten
Where it is I'm from
Roaming down the highway
Staring into the sun
Who are all these travelers?
What makes us the same?
Who is there to blame
for this game we play

Here I am an old man
Standing on my porch
Here I am a wiser man
Well I don't no nothin much
Reach my hands towards the trees
Take all that I need
Reach my mind into my dreams
To plant another seed x
