I wrote this song after my boyfriend and I built a camper on the back of our '66 Chevy pickup truck and took off to see the country.

Just a few short weeks ago we told our friends its time to go
Said goodbye with tears and kisses
Oh god we’re gonna miss you
At last we’re on our way together, for awhile or forever,
Everybody asks but we don’t know
Old friends and distant places now become familiar faces
Friends that we saw every day, strange to have them so damn far away.

Lots of smog in Indiana
Lots of sky in old Montana
Lots of friendly people on the road.
Can’t stay in one place to long
Once you start to move along
Friends ask us to stay but we’ve just gotta go
Back on the road together, seems like it goes on forever
One thing’s true ‘bout those who roam
They can’t stop until they find a home

You know when you go digging up the past
Youre gonna find a few friendships didn’t last
Oh with some the years apart are so easy to forget
With others that’s the only thing that’s left

Just a few short weeks ago we told our friends it’s time to go
Said goodbye with tears and kisses
Oh god we’r gonna miss you
At last we’re on our way together, for awhile or forever
Everybody asks but we don’t know
Back on the road together, seems like it goes on forever
One thing’s true ‘bout those who roam
They can’t stop until they find themselves a home
