Like a restless leave

in the autumn breeze

once, i was a tumbleweed

Like a rollin stone

cold and all alone

living for the day my dream would come

 

I never cared for school

Or any golden rule

and Papa used to alway say I was a useless fool

So I left my home

to show 'em they was wrong

and headed out on the road signin my song

 

Then one sunny day

the man he looked my way

and everything that I dreamed of it was real

Money, girls and cars

big long cigars

and i caught the first plane home so papa could see

When I went home

to show em they was wrong

all that i found was his to-tombstone

somebody tell me please was i right or wrong

 

first i got lost then i got found,

but the ones that i loved are in the ground

papa I only wish you could see me now

 

 

take a listen papa:

If there's any way

that you could hear what I say

papa I never mean to be alone

all the money, girls and cars

and all the world's long cigars

papa i just want you to know they couldn't take your place

 

When I went home

to show em they was wrong

all that i found was his to-tombstone

somebody tell me please was i right or wrong

 

first i got lost then i got found,

but the ones that i loved are in the ground

papa I only wish you could see me now
