Lyrics – On a Journey

Restin’ on a rock in the river,
Let the water soakin’ all my cares away.
Watch the weeds dance and shiver,
Let my mind drift high as I say,

Let’s float to ol’ St. Louie, fly to New York City,
Run to Detroit, Denver or LA.
Just get away, hey, hey. Just get away.

Sittin’ on a bus bound for nowhere,
Diesel smoke ain’t the kind I enjoy.
Lady looks at me with flowers in her hair,
Time to take a trip, hold my hand boy,

Let’s head to Reno, Drive to Tallahassee,
Hitch to Galveston, Gary or Green Bay.
Just get away, hey, hey. Just get away.

[bridge]
The destination ain’t the reason,
It’s the sights along the way, the season,
Take your time on the journey,
Lose your sorrows and your worries,
Take it slow, never hurry,

Just get away, hey, hey, hey. Just get away.

Jettin’ on a plane over the ocean,
Busy people on the ground with no voice.
Never looking up, just going through the motion,
Freedom’s not gift, freedom is a choice,

That’s what I say, hey, hey, hey

Just get away, hey, hey, hey.
Just get away, hey, hey, hey
Just walk to Kansas City,
ride to Tahoe pretty,
cruise to Phoenix, Albuquerque, 
roam to Lincoln, Okeechobee
get to Richmond, Bend or Monterey

But get away, hey, hey, hey. Get away, hey, hey, hey

Lyrics – Just take my love

Don’t take my whiskey,
don’t take the air that I breathe.
Don’t take the things that I own,
don’t take the money that I need.

Just take my love,
I said take my love,
cuz’ that’s all I got.

Don’t take my car,
don’t take the hat that I wear.
Don’t take boots that I kick,
don’t take my lounge away chair.

Just take my love,
I said take my love,
cuz’ that’s all I got.

[bridge]
The things you want you don’t need,
the things you own but don’t feed,
the things you cut that don’t bleed,
all them things, now, don’t. you. see,
just take you down, down, down, down, down.

down, down, down, down, down

Don’t take my mind,
don’t take the schemes that I scheme.
Don’t take the songs that I sing,
don’t take the dreams that I dream.

Just take my love,
go on take my love,
cuz’ that’s all I got.

Cuz’ that’s all I got.
And that’s all you need.

So, just take my love,
I said take my love,
cuz’ that’s all you need.

Lyrics – Away

Only clouds and smoke surround me.
The angry sun won’t look my way.
Blind, the people scream and tear free.
From the Earth, though children play.

And sing their songs of falling, falling, falling.
While I’m calling, calling, calling.

The winds will blow and shed no tears.
For lovers howling in the night.
Torn apart they drown in fears,
Of losing touch, of losing sight.

And all the children crying, crying, crying.
As I’m begging, begging, begging.

[bridge]
Will no one hear, will no one speak,
will no one seek to find?
The broken hearts, the broken dreams,
the broken, shattered minds.

When morning comes, the sun still hides.
As bed sheets flutter torn to ribbons.
At tender touch, all night she cried.
For battles lost and battles won.

And still the children lying, lying, lying.
While I’m flying, flying, flying
Away.

[repeat bridge]
Will no one hear, will no one speak,
will no one seek to find?
The broken hearts, the broken dreams,
the broken, shattered minds.
