Words and Music by Sonny Brookbank (a.k.a. Lucas Brookbank Brown)

Special thanks to Griffin White who played violin on this track, and Fred Schrumpf for allowing me to borrow 2 beautiful Martin guitars for this recording. All instruments were played and recorded by yours truly at my home studio.

lyrics

i ain't got time to sit around and think about problems
i'm trading all my troubles for some traveling days
this winding highway seems like the only escape
wisdom of the road take my worries away

words can be bigger than the wordsmith or the book worm
nights can last longer than we've ever felt
i took these words brought 'em down from the shelf
in the back of my head where the rain falls down
in the back of my head where the rain is coming down

my oh my she rolls
rolls like the sea
and it's only the salt between her and me
i can taste the salt, honey,
don't you lie to me

words can be useless, empty like the ice box
colder than the black moon and soft in the light
you could be a traitor, a lover or a painter
please show me a sunset or i'll never know
just show me somewhere i never thought i'd go

there ain't time to sit around and think about problems
were trading all our troubles for the traveler's way
love is a lesson a curse and a blessing
heart of the hitcherman take me away
spirit of the sailor don't lead us astray
one day i'll find you my needle in the hay
