This song is for the vagabond in all of us.



Written By: Rachael Hurwitz

Verse 1
Guitar on my back,
I walked down the road.
Drinking away the autumn cold,
Trying to forget my hurting soul.
My legs like lead,
But I pushed on.
A lonely trail,
but it lead to dawn
When I heard a voice that eased my bones,
But it turned out to be...

Just a magpie in a tree,
just my shadow in the street,
But something said keep going,
You'll find a place worth knowing.

Verse 2
My home I up and left behind.
That boy a still frame in my mind,
Everywhere I turned I saw his face.
So I packed my things, said my goodbyes.
My roots remain, but I cut my ties,
Something told me I just had to go,
But it turned out to be...

Chorus 2
Just the rustlin' of the leaves,
just a passing evening breeze,
But something said get going,
You'll find a place worth knowing.

Oh I don't know where I'm bound,
But I've become
A rambler and a vagabond,
But something tells me that's okay.
We were not all meant to stay
in one place, in one place...

Chorus 3
Like the rustlin' of the leaves,
like the passing evening breeze,
Something says keep going,
You'll be a face worth knowing.
