Upchurch – Traveler Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I stay walkin' the woods, gettin' lost in my thoughts
Wonderin' if this path is the one that I'm 'posed to be on
But I do get lost in a daze, way deep back off in my mind
And I realize camera flashes really will make you go blind
And not just blind in a sense, and not the cents that make dollars
I'm not gonna go crazy over shit to me that don't really matter
Who cares if you got money, shit, dog, I got money too
But when you drop the materialistic shit then who the f*ck are you
And I'm just strollin' through fields call me the phantom of Dixie
With the devil creeping behind, always slick, tryin' to come trick me
But I ain't paying attention to the shadows that lurk my back
I'm here to be a star and have folks down the road read out my path

[Chorus]
He was a traveler, a rockstar and a healer
Four wheels spinin' in the sunset through the night
Into the dark unknown, guns are loaded
But he always made it home before the light

[Verse 2]
I grew up with my Paw Paw watchin' reruns of Lonesome Dove
Tombstone and Mash, I'd dress up in his cowboy hat some
And I grab his guitar and pretend to be Johnny Cash on a stage
Just standin' in the kitchen when I didn't know how to play
And I'm surrounded by snakes but I'm the one with the venom
I got the voice of the good people, mainstream won't even listen
I can't even get two seconds, shit, I'm the black sheep I guess
But I'm gonna conquer these obstacles with the blade at my neck
Yeah I stress out so I smoke and Mary Jane picks me up
My mind state in the moonlight is somethin' powerful from above
So when the full moon cast a beam and the beam is shinin' on me
I guess it's time to hit the stage like the edible I am
[Chorus]
He was a traveler, a rockstar and a healer
Four wheels spinin' in the sunset through the night
Into the dark unknown, guns are loaded
But he always made it home before the light
