BORDERS TO CROSS, BRIDGES TO BURN
This coat I'm wearin' still has her perfume
that night under the Colorado moon
we listened to the wild wind blowin',
her in love and never knowin'
that soon I'd pack my bags and I'd be gone
and leave her sleepin' softly all alone.
Like a thief I quietly kissed her,
she never heard the words I whispered...
I hear the thunder rollin' in, the rain is comin' down,
I'd like to stay but I couldn't lay this worthless guitar down.
Runnin' wild is my life's blood, I think it's time you learned
that I've got borders to cross and bridges to burn.
I recall a beat-up Chevrolet
and all the songs my old man used play,
but when he heard the wild wind blowin',
if he wasn't gone he was goin'.
Mama said he never really gave a damn,
he was just a no-account ramblin' man.
Late one night I watched him hold her,
and I heard the last words he told her...
Every night is another town, the road is long,
and a ramblin' heart never settles down,
and though it's hard livin' on your own,
she can't love a man who won't come home.
