Tumbleweed
Lyrics
I thought I saw you on the other side of the railroad tracks
Through the flicker of freight cars as the train outta town thundered by
Through the dust on my windshield but I wasn't sure
Through the mists of my memories that always endure
I recalled how we used to roll, how we used to roll

Back in our teens in our hand-me-down jeans
Ain't nobody could'a tore us down
We would roll with the breeze do whatever we'd please
All the way through our tumbledown town

Just like tumbleweed
On the wind in the morning light
Just like tumbleweed
Rollin' wild from through the days and the nights
Oh like tumbleweed
Like we were born of no father or mother
Rolled like tumbleweed
When we always had one another

I thought I saw you but you'd disappeared from the other side
Like you never were there or you'd rolled with the train out of view
Did we tumble so far in our liberty days
That the wind blew us on to our separate ways?
Oh I loved how we used to roll, how we used to roll

Back in our teens in our hand-me-down jeans
Ain't nobody could'a tore us down
We were two refugees like a social disease
To the folks in our tumbledown town

Just like tumbleweed
On the wind in the morning light
Just like tumbleweed
Rollin' wild from through the days and the nights
Oh like tumbleweed
Like we were born of no father or mother
Rolled like tumbleweed
When we always had one another

Just like tumbleweed
On the wind in the morning light
Just like tumbleweed
Rollin' wild from through the days and the nights
Oh like tumbleweed
Never stopping for no red light
Rolled like tumbleweed
And we rolled 'til we rolled outta sight
