The Wayfarer

Album: Western Stars (2019)
  • It's the same sad story
    Love and glory goin' 'round and 'round
    It's the same old cliché
    A wanderer on his way, slippin' from town to town
    Some find peace here on the sweet streets
    The sweet streets of home
    Where kindness falls and your heart calls
    For a permanent place of your own

    I'm a wayfarer, baby
    I drift from town to town
    When everyone's asleep and the midnight bells sound
    My wheels are hissin' up the highway
    Spinning 'round and 'round

    You start out slow in a sweet little bungalow
    Something two can call home
    Then rain comes fallin'
    The blues come calling, you're left with a heart of stone

    Some folks are inspired sitting by the fire
    Slippers tucked under the bed
    When I go to sleep, I can't count sheep
    For the white lines in my head

    I'm a wayfarer, baby
    I roam from town to town
    When everyone's asleep and the midnight bells sound
    My wheels are hissin' up the highway
    Spinning 'round and 'round

    Where are you now?
    Where are you now?
    Where are you now?
    Oh!

    I'm a wayfarer, baby
    I roam from town to town
    When everyone's asleep and the midnight bells sound
    My wheels are hissin' up the highway
    Spinning 'round and 'round

    I'm a wayfarer, baby
    I'm a wayfarer, baby
    I'm a wayfarer, baby (wayfarer, baby)
    I'm a wayfarer, baby (wayfarer, baby)
    I'm a wayfarer, baby (wayfarer, baby)
    I'm a wayfarer, baby (wayfarer, baby)
    I'm a wayfarer, baby (wayfarer, baby)
    I'm a wayfarer, baby (wayfarer, baby) Writer/s: Bruce Springsteen
