The Promise Land

The Promise Land (no MP3 available)

I think I’ll quit my job today
Sell what I can give the rest away
This broken promise life I’m leading
Just ain’t giving me what I’m needing

You see I’m hanging by a thread
I’ve got these voices inside my head
And every one of them sounds like you
So I know just what I’m gonna do

Chorus:
I’ve got me a brand new plan
And I don’t give a good Goddamn
The walls are closing in on me
I’ve seen all I need to see
I’m gonna go as fast as I can
Straight towards the promise land
I’ve always wanted to be a travellin’ man
Mama your baby’s gonna be a travellin’ man

Maybe when enough miles pass by
I’ll stop somewhere along the roadside
Hear the coyote’s sad, mournful howl
And know just what he’s talking about

I’ll lie down underneath the stars
Count my regrets and the passing cars
I’ll hear that lonesome whippoorwill
And I’ll know exactly how he feels

Bridge:
Take my love and put it on the shelf
Take my love and put it on the shelf
Cause I am an orphan now
I don’t need nobody else

Chorus:
I’ve got me a brand new plan
And I don’t give a good Goddamn
The walls are closing in on me
I’ve seen all I need to see
I’m gonna go as fast as I can
Straight towards the promise land
I’ve always wanted to be a travellin’ man
Mama your baby’s gonna be a travellin’ man

Mama your baby’s gonna be a travellin’ man
