lyrics

Fighting boredom
In Oklahoma
On a long trip from Nashville, TN

The hazy hot sun
And the one that’s calling
Reminds me that the truth is always
What turns out to be

In walks a subject
That I have sworn to
Always keep pushing me along that chosen line

Somewhere through Yukon
Somehow I thought it’d all go wrong
But there’s a romance in the darkest of nights

Old Mister Drifter
I’m clutching on for dear life
But there’s just so many places to fall off

Old Mister Drifter
I’m holding on for dear life
But there’s just so many places to fall off

I met a stranger who said she knew me
From a lifetime that I could not recall

We took the desert
and worked the field ‘till it was black
and planted victory swaying 8 feet tall

We found a chapel nestled deep within the pines
A lonely congregation sang that perfect song
The voices warned me
Oh but I ignored the call

They say the truth is always what turns out to be

Old Mister Drifter
I’m clutching on for dear life
But there’s just so many places to fall off

Old Mister Drifter
I’m holding on for dear life
But there’s just so many places to fall off
