Eastern winter fills the rear view mirror; as I cross the Olentangy County line

Heading west I find my head is clearer; at least I think it is this time


Ain't it funny how life changes; the things I do it rearranges

A simpler life; with fewer things to own

Crossing Indiana plains; windshield wipers fighting rain

Tomorrow just a day ahead and storming; Gives warning

I'll see you in the morning



I best remember sunny mornings; clear blue skies and dawn's bright early light

Life was then uncomplicated; Never had a future seemed so bright


Ain't it funny how I'm changing; the things I do I'm rearranging

Once a battered granite rock; but now a rolling stone

Nebraska fields no end in sight; stars replacing clouds tonight

Tomorrow just a day ahead and forming; a life transforming

I'll see you in the morning


I've heard it said there's gold in California; & sunsets there are quite the sight to see

Surfside hills and redwood forests waiting; to greet another wanderer like me



Ain't it funny how life changes; the things I do it rearranges

My simpler life with fewer; things to own

Suitcase and a Guild guitar; are two best friends in a run down car

A one way conversation forming; Life is warming

We'll be there in the morning
