Travelin' Alone         

 

Travelin alone has a kick all its own - but sometimes round a bend

You happen to find an accomplice, like-minded mate, co-conspirator, friend

 

I remember once in Marrakech – Got involved with a rambunctious princes 

Had to save her from a gang of bandits and cutthroats

Her daddy gave me a bag of silver – said I’d live to spend it if I took the river

Wavin’ by to her from the stern of the royal rowboat

 

And I don’t know where I’m goin – don’t remember where I’ve been  

But whatever way its blowin’ – my sails are with the wind  

 

Washed up on a Southseas shore – friendly natives, pungent flora

They crowned me king and festivities began

I was eeny meeny mining for a paramour – then the hon I wanted warned me I’ze to be the main course

Took a potty break and zipped off in a catamaran                   Thank you darling!

 

What the heck am I thinking – to get into all these fixes

Maybe shoulda stayed home drinkin – with my homies down in Dixie

 

A guru by the Bay of Bengal – hypnotized me when we mingled

Sent me walkin’ up along the Ganges to her source  - must have passed it cause

I was lost and freezing in the snow when a yeti found me and led me below

To a yak who got me back on course.                                 

 

Don’t know what is happenin’ or what’s gonna happen next

When things get cruddy will I have a buddy who pulls me out of a wreck

 

Travelin alone has a kick all its own - but sometimes round a bend                          

You happen to find an accomplice, like-minded mate, co-conspirator, friend

You can scramble round with – friend, you can babble on to – friend

You can climb out of the rubble with – friend, you can hobble on with – friend  A travelin friend
