The Lyrics Are Below

 

The Wanderer

 

I went out walking through streets paved with gold

Lifted some stones - saw the skin and bones

Of a city without a soul

I went out walking under an atomic sky

Where the ground won't turn and the rain it burns

Like the tears when I said goodbye

Yeah, I went with nothing

Nothing but the thought of you

I went wandering

 

I went drifting through the capitals of tin

Where men can't walk or freely talk

And sons turn their fathers in

I stopped outside a church house

Where the citizens like to sit

They say they want the kingdom

But they don't want God in it

 

I went out riding down that old eight-lane

I passed by a thousand signs

Looking for my own name

 

I went with nothing

But the thought you'd be there too

Looking for you

 

I went out there in search of experience

To taste and to touch and to feel as much

As a man can before he repents

 

I went out searching, looking for one good man

A spirit who would not bend or break

Who would sit at his father's right hand

I went out walking with a bible and a gun

The word of God lay heavy on my heart

I was sure I was the one

Now Jesus, don't you wait up

Jesus, I'll be home soon

Yeah, I went out for the papers

Told her I'd be back by noon

 

Yeah I left with nothing

But the thought you'd be there too

Looking for you

 

Yeah, I left with nothing

Nothing but the thought of you

I went wandering
