Carry Me Like The Wind




I was born in the City
It’s the only Country I know
But deep inside me are rivers
Canyons and Plateaus
And all the glory of American Soil
And it’s richer than any farm land home

I’ve stood on the mountains of Washington
And tasted the snow
And on the old brick streets of windy Chicago
Swam the oceans at Seaside in San Diego
And the plains of my Texas home

And we were born of dreamers
So a dreamer I’ll remain
Even if I’m the only one
Yeah cuz my heart’s red and my brain says there’s too much road to be left alone
So carry me like the wind
Back home again

So in my final days
I wanna look like the Mountains
Of Northern California
For every line on my body I want a thousand stories
And from my heart to hold the great American Novel
Yeah cuz I have many friends but time is not one
It just rolls down that road as I hold out my thumb
Waitin for the day he puts me deep, deep in the grave

And we were born of dreamers
So a dreamer I’ll remain
Even if I’m the only one
Yeah cuz my heart’s red and my brain says there’s too much road to be left alone
So carry me like the wind
Back home again

Bury me in American Soil
Deep in the ground with my forefathers
So I too may whisper to all who follow
The same words carved into my skin
The same words carved into my skin

Carry me like the wind
Carry me like the wind
Carry me like the wind
Just like the wind
