I Am A Wanderer

This song is by Steve Earle and appears on the album I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive (2011).

I am a wanderer, feet on the ground
Heart on my sleeve and my head in the clouds
Eye on a star above some distant shore
Wandering ever more

I am a refugee torn from my land
Cast off to travel this world to its end
Never to see my proud mountains again
But I still remember them

I am a laborer, sign around my neck
"Will work for trust, dignity and respect"
Stand on this corner so that you don't forget
I haven't had mine yet

I am a prisoner pacing my cell
Three steps and back in my corner of hell
Lock me away and you swallow the key
But some day I shall be free

And I'll be wanderer, feet on the ground
Heart on my sleeve and my head in the clouds
Eye on a star above some distant shore
Wandering ever more
