lyrics

He was born in Texas prime
He ate steaks at the County Line
He was free, he had everything

He raised hell, he smoked a few
He grew addicted to the blues
And grew up, forgot how to sing

I woke up on a plane, thinking of my greatest fears
Would you rather go blind or would you rather lose both your ears

He left home before he packed
He strapped a road bike across the back
And drove west, without anything

He asked god, you got my back?
I left notes between the cracks
Of the walls and longed for open range

Well we jammed on Skynyrd for tips inside a coffee bar
We dueled over final notes but never got too far
Well I'm stuck sitting, thinking, we're never gonna play again
We made it out of Pittsburgh just to take a walk my friend

When we walk, we walk to find our peace of mind
He walks alone with the redwoods
While I stroll past institutions of state

When we walk, we walk to find our peace of mind
He walks alone with the redwoods
While I stroll past institutions of state
When we walk

If you're an old school picker, swept under the rug
Then I'm every classic rock guitar unplugged

He was born in Texas prime
He ate steaks at the County Line
He was free, he had everything
He was free, he had everything
