Life's not about how hard you can hit; it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.


I'm leaving here
On a one way street
And I ain't looking back
On mistakes that I've made
I don't know where I'm going
And don't know who'll I'll meet
I'm just a nomad traviler
Trying to make my way

So I roll
To where; I don't know
I roll
And I make my way
Maybe I'll come back someday
I roll

My fears have gathered up
And They've tore me down
So I'll pack up my stuff
And head from town to town
No I ain't looking back
"cause it's all in my past
I close my eyes and pray for home
But now I'm on my own

So I roll
To where; I don't know
I roll
And I make my way
Maybe I'll come back someday
I roll
(Guitar solo)

Yes I'm a vagabond
Looking for home
Call me a vagrant if ya want
I need someone to take my hand
Someone to pull me toward the promise land

So I roll
To where; I don't know
I roll
And I make my way
Maybe I'll come back someday
I roll
Tell momma
I'm a coming home
I roll.....

The author's comments:
I wrote this song originaly to add some acustic sound to my songs but when i wrote these lyrics it became a story. in the song a stuburn teen leaves home to make his own life but then misses home and can't get a way to get back to his family. The way the guitar peices the story together can really make you think, which was the goal from the beggining. I hope you enjoy the lyrics and understand what they mean.
