lyrics

Well the road stretches out before me
Through the deserts and the hills
Got nothing but time to keep me company
And at the pace I’m goin’ I’m pretty sure it will
Well the sports cars and the SUVs keep passing on the left
I’m not getting very far
I’m just moving as fast as I can
But I haven’t got a bike and I haven’t got a car

And I ain’t got no rear view mirror
Ain’t got no brakes
Never stopping for gas again
Gonna keep on moving whatever it takes
Got the sun on my face and the wind in my hair
I’m just gonna keep on walking till I get there
Keep on walkin till I get there

If you’re looking for a road-side attraction
You might just be looking at me
And I’ll wave and I’ll smile, but I ain’t sticking out my thumb
On my feet I’m as happy as can be
No glass between me and the outside
I just listen to what it has to say
And it tells me everything gonna be alright
Cause I’m moving forward as long as I’m walking away

And I ain’t got no rear view mirror
Ain’t got no brakes
Never stopping for gas again
Gonna keep on movin' whatever it takes
Got the sun on my Face and the wind in my Hair
Just gonna keep on walking till I get there
Keep on Walkin till I get there
Keep on walking till I get there

Well the road’s still stretching out before
I guess it also stretches out behind
And there’s memories and blisters and there’s scabs and there’s sores
All over these walking feet me of mine
So when you’re blowing by me in the fast lane
Don’t you pay me any mind
I’ve got the world all around me to keep me company
As long as I keep walking I’ll be fine

And I ain’t got no rear view mirror
Ain’t got no brakes
Never stopping for gas again
Gonna keep on movin’ whatever it takes
Got the sun on my Face and the wind in my Hair
Just gonna keep on walking till I get there
I don’t know where I ‘m going
Just gonna Keep on walkin till I get there
Keep on walkin till I get there
