lyrics

I been pickin my way down to Arkansas
switching ‘tween the rolls of Scruggs & claw
wonder if I’ll ever ‘light again
thinking ‘bout them redemptive dreams
the ones we lose and what they mean
wonder if I’ll ever ‘light again

cuz it’s been oh my (oh my lord)
oh my lord so long
since I packed up (packed my troubles)
my troubles and gone away

to cross this country as the birds do fly
hopping them rails and sipping that rye
wonder if I’ll ever ‘light again
making my living in a mason jar
with my new banjo and my old guitar
wonder if I’ll ever light again

cuz it’s been oh my (oh my lord)
oh my lord so long
since I packed up (packed my troubles)
my troubles and gone away

it may seem lonesome to be on your own
but the open road is where I’m home

I might head on next down to New Orleans
follow that river and find them dreams
wonder if I’ll ever ‘light again
or maybe out west towards a big blue sky
where the deserts roll and the canyons rise
wonder if I’ll ever ‘light again

cuz it’s been oh my (oh my lord)
oh my lord so long
since I packed up (packed my troubles)
my troubles and gone away

I left pretty quick on a Christmas day
Said, “I love you, but I just can’t stay.”
wonder if I’ll ever ‘light again
Cuz I can’t be everything for anyone
and if you hold too tight I’m sure to run
wonder if I’ll ever ‘light again

it may seem lonesome to be on your own
but the open road is where I’m home
