lyrics

Mama I was born to be a drifter
Another city on my horizon every mornin when I rise.
This guitar in the back seat, four wheels beneath me
To carry me along the winding road.

Maybe I was meant to be a preacher
A leather bound bible in my hand and a fire on my tongue.
Speak from my podium to all the fine folks in the pews
'Til glory glory one day to fly away

I get to thinkin sometimes
All these paths laid before me
Begin and end with the same thing
The one who made a way will lead me through

Maybe I was made to be broken-hearted
The one I love has left me, I can't get her of my mind
I hear that falling on your face is the best way to your knees
Well I'm here now, how I long for grace
I'm here now, oh how I long for grace.

Father I have so many questions
When you were a young man at my age, did mama ever pass you by?
As a stranger at. the bus stop, an acquaintance on the path?
Oh father how did you come to live with that?
Or did you fight with tooth and nail to win her back?

I get to thinkin sometimes
All these paths laid before me
They are not mine to hold on to
The one who made a way will lead me through

Mama I was born to be a drifter
Another city on my horizon every mornin when I rise.
This guitar in the back seat, four wheels beneath me
To carry me along the winding road
To carry me along the winding road
Oh to carry me until I'm home
