One Heel in the Dirt

One Heel in the Dirt

Moving from town to town
Everywhere I go I place one heel in the dirt.
To try to grow some roots
But then I seem to find myself
In the middle of the damn desert
With no oasis in sight.

Wanderers are not yet lost.
The road can be lonely at first.
Only search for the Journey.
How high will be the Cost?

Moving from town to town
Everywhere I go I place one heel in the dirt.
To try to grow some roots
But then I seem to find myself
In the middle of the damn desert
With no oasis in sight.

More bewildered at each passing mile
Nowhere to hide from Myself:
All ties are broken but One.
It’s been so long, I’ve forgotten how to Smile.

Moving from town to town
Everywhere I go I place one heel in the dirt.
To try to grow some roots
But then I seem to find myself
In the middle of the damn desert
With no oasis in sight.

Long roads and short memories,
If you run far enough you’ll end up back again.
You can’t lose yourself without help,
Unless you know where you’re going.
The question you must seize.

Moving from town to town
Everywhere I go I place one heel in the dirt.
To try to grow some roots
But then I seem to find myself
In the middle of the damn desert
With no oasis in sight.
