      About "Travelin' Light"

      Lyrics for Robert Earl Keen - "Travelin' Light"

      You've been standin' on the corner for a thousand nights
      Ifs the slowest corner known to man
      Watchin' strange faces passin' 'neath the lights
      With a bottle wavin' in your hand
      You got just enough money for some nothin' to go
      It ain't exactly what you planned
      So lonesome that you can't even say hello
      And no one seems to understand

      [Chorus]
      So you're a mixed up kid, come on and join the crowd
      The ones that only fit where they're not allowed
      Out on the streets and you're feelin' blue
      Travelin' light
      With a hole in your soul where the wind blows through
      A hole in your soul where the wind blows through

      You wandered away from your childhood home
      Nobody cared to trace
      The tracks you laid
      You traveled by night
      And you traveled alone
      Came to rest at a penny arcade
      Well, the last shots over
      On a Saturday night You wake up in the beam
      Of a cop's flashlight
      He asks you who you are as if you
      Knew or you cared
      He asks you where you live
      And you say nowhere

      [Chorus]

      I don't know where I got it
      But, I got it the same
      It's a feelin' that'll rip you apart
      It follows me around
      Like a part of my name
      Like I'm born with a time bomb
      Instead of a heart

      [Chorus]
