JAMES WESLEY lyrics

I'm A Lonesome Fugitive

Original and similar lyrics
Down every road there's always one more city I'm on the run, the highway is my home I raised a lot of cane back in my younger days While Mama used to pray my crops would fail I'm a hunted fugitive with just two ways: Outrun the law or spend my life in jail I'd like to settle down but they won't let me A fugitive must be a rolling stone Down every road there's always one more city I'm on the run, the highway is my home I'm lonely but I can't afford the luxury Of having one I love to come along She'd only slow me down and they'd catch up with me For he who travels fastest goes alone I'd like to settle down but they won't let me A fugitive must be a rolling stone Down every road there's always one more city I'm on the run, the highway is my home I'm on the run, the highway is my home

Highway Song

JAMES TAYLOR "Mud Slide Slim And The Blue Horizon"
Father, let us build a boat and sail away, there's nothing for you here. And brother, let us throw our lot out upon the sea. It's been done before. I'm thinking about a broken heart, I'm talking 'bout the break of dawn, you love me while I'm here and you can miss me when I'm gone. Sweet misunderstanding, won't you leave a poor boy alone, I'm the one eyed seed of a tumbleweed in the belly of a rolling stone. Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah, back on the road again. I had a little woman in Memphis, she wanted to be my bride. She said, settle on down, traveling man, you can stay right by my side. I tried so hard to please her but I couldn't hold out too long, cause one Saturday night I was laying in bed and I heard that highway song. Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah, back on the road again. Now one of these days that highway song will lose its appeal to me. I'm gonna settle on down like a natural born man, I'm gonna live my life naturally, free and easy, mmmmm. Until that day the thunder's gonna roll and I notice there's a sign of rain, so I grab my bags and I pack my clothes and I'm back on the road again. Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah, back on the road again. I'm thinking about a broken heart, I'm talking 'bout the break of dawn, you love me while I'm here and you can miss me when I'm gone. Sweet misunderstanding, won't you leave a poor boy alone, I'm the one eyed seed of a tumbleweed in the belly of a rolling stone. Back on the highway, yeah, yeah, yeah, back on the road again. Here I am again, Holiday Inn, same old four walls again. Gee, but it's fine to be back home again, whoa, now. Said, Holiday Inn, I'm on the road again.

Tumbleweed

ALANNAH MYLES "Rockinghorse"
Just a stray little Gypsy boy, trying on the highway for size A cowboy kid cracking 105, crossing the New Mexico line (I believe) I believe we got a live one here, (hey hey) no inhibitions no fear [Chorus:] Hey you wanna play your hand Or are you just playing for the girls in the grandstand Don't you wanna roll them bones Are you a tumbleweed or a rolling stone Tag along with my little vagabond, as long as you got something to burn We'll slide on over to old Antone's There's a little game I think you should learn (Hey hey) There's a big shot of the owner hanging over the bar (Hey hey) Shaking hands with some rock and roll star [Chorus] Well I'm glad I let you find me boy, I been waitin' for you Won't you be my brand new pride and joy I've been savin' up all my good luck until tonight [Solo] On a roll he was on top of the world Till he laid it all on seven and nine Lost his shirt and his keys to the highway Looks like I'll be driving tonight (Hey hey) Ten to one we'll take the long way home (Hey hey) We've got ignition, so let's go [Chorus repeats 2x] Are you a tumbleweed or a rolling stone Are you a tumbleweed or a rolling stone...

Which Way Is Home

JOHNNY REID "Kicking Stones"
Hello stranger Good to see ya Staring back at me It’s been a long time I barely recognize Who I used to be Yeah it’s been a journey of twists and turns I got a little off track I had good intentions but bad directions All I wanna do is go back Which way is home I need to know I’m like a rolling stone down a rocky road I’ve been gone gone gone for way too long I paid the cost of being lost Which way is home? Found myself in the pouring rain and let it wash me clean. It’s amazing what a man can see when he’s down upon his knees I had a soul searching revelation! Yeah it set my chained heart free I’m so close yet so far from where I want to be Which way is home I need to know I’m like a rolling stone Down a rocky road And I been gone gone gone for way too long And I paid cost for being lost Which way is home? Which way is home? I been up I been down I been spun all around I stumbled and fell through heaven and hell Now it’s time for me to go Which way is home? I need to know I’m like a rolling stone Down a rocky road And I’ve been gone gone gone gone gone for way too long I paid the cost for being lost Which way is home? Which way is home? Which way his home? Which way is home? Which way is home? I need to know Which way is home?

I Am The Highway

AUDIOSLAVE "Audioslave"
Pearls and swine bereft of me Long and weary my road has been I was lost in the cities Alone in the hills No sorrow or pity for leaving I feel I am not your rolling wheels I am the highway I am not your carpet ride I am the sky Friends and liards don't wait for me I'll get on ll by myself I put millions of miles Under my heels And still too close to you I feel I am not your rolling wheels I am the highway I am not your carpet I am the sky I am not your blowing wind I am the lightning I am not your autumn moon I am the night

Nowhere Road

FASTBALL "All the Pain Money Can Buy"
There's trouble on the subway There's something on the track There's a dead end waiting and We can't go back So take it to the highway Head back and open wide Step right up and take a nowhere ride [Chorus:] It's a nowhere road It's a nowhere road No matter where it goes it's a Nowhere road It's a nowhere road and I'm tired It's a nowhere job and I'm fired It don't matter what they say You can't get there going this way From L.A. to Miami And all points in between Look outside you get the same old scene You take it to the highway You travel far and wide Caterpillars carving up the country side [Chorus] It's a nowhere road and I'm tired [Repeat]
