Hitch Hiker Song on CD

Yea, I'm living life on the road, traveling across the land,
I left my humble abode, with just my thumb on my hand,
I'm sightseeing and free....heading somewhere...
with no better place to be, in my world of no care,

Yea, I'm hitch hiking....thumbing for a ride...
half broke, no home, roaming the countryside..
like a tumbleweed blowing across the USA...
those miles keep growing behind me all the way,

I'm sightseeing and free, headed somewhere,
with no better place to be, in my world of no care,
Yea, I'm living life on the road, traveling across the land,
sometimes the nights get cold, but the sunny days are grand,

I'm a road hiker, gonna hitch a ride,
meeting new faces, across the countryside,
like a tumbleweed blowing in a gentle wind...
with no better place to be...than where I haven't been,

I'm sightseeing and free, in my world of no care,
with no better place to be than going somewhere.

    You could do that years ago. Travelled alot with my thumb when I was a teenager. Even hitched to school some mornings rather than take the bus. Vince

    Hi Lawrence, thanx for your comments on my poem Snowflake. :) I know what you mean about the weather, we've had some extreme leaps here too, not so much snow though but RAIN (LOL which is where my Before the Storm and Raindrop comes from!) haha We had five days straight of rain, rain, & lo & behold even more *rain*! Today though the sun's shining, YAY! ANYWAY I love this poem, has that feeling of freedom to it. You wrote it wonderfully, can see the world through his eyes. Happy Holidays Amy :)
