Nowhere kind of guy.
I headed for Australia in the year of sixty seven
I traveled, me on the good Fairsea
And the journey was pure heaven
The sea was wild and stormy
But it never bothered me
For I was off to face my destiny.
Then I became a soldier
And they sent me off to war
As they filled me full of anger
So it was never like before
And so I welcomed manhood
With a soul that had been soiled
As deep within the savage child did boil.
Now I’m a nowhere kind of guy
And I don’t know where I’m going
Cause I decided long ago
That there ain’t no way of knowing
I guess a guy has got to keep on flowing.
Now here I am, and Vietnam
Was way back down the track
And I’ve done some things and I’m carrying sins
And I’ve suffered some way back
I’ve paid some heavy dues and all
And I’ve still got heaps to come
Cause what’s been done’s ,been done all said and done
Written in 1990.
