Traveling Poor Boy

Cobb, Brent
Old man in the moon
Shining in my rearview
Leaving that Tennessee town
You're all I have to talk to
Don't know where my dog ran off to
But he's gone
And has been for a while now

Where I'm bound?
Well I haven't figured it out;
I'm sure I'll find my usual old wrong way
The cost to leave ain't cheap
I don't need no eat or sleep
Even if I did I lost my job, so I don't got much pay

But it's Okay
Cause anymore would burn hole in my pocket
Lord I can't afford to be a poor boy broke
Besides this pair of jeans is already pretty teared at the seams
The last that I need is a pant stain from a smoke
I'm gonna ride until my ride quits riding
Then I'm gonna walk until my boots walk off
Yes sir I'll be a sight when I get where
They're looking mean and loud
But tonight I'm feeling free and friendly
Barely scraping change
Waving goodbye

Say Old man in the moon
I hear that you get blue too
It must be lonesome way up in the sky
The stars seem mighty proud
If I were you I'd hate a cloud
All they ever do is hang around and cry
Guess it ain't a shame
To be rolling like a slow train
Or glowing like only you do, I'll tell you what
I'll keep right on track, if you keep shining bright like that
I bet before we know it, this journey will be through
And the hard times too

But it's Okay
Cause anymore would burn hole in my pocket
Lord I can't afford to be a poor boy broke
Besides this pair of jeans is already pretty teared at the seams
The last that I need is a pant stain from a smoke
I'm gonna ride until my ride quits riding
Then I'm gonna walk until my boots walk off
Yes sir I'll be a sight when I get where
They're looking mean and loud
But tonight I'm feeling free and friendly
Barely scraping change
Waving goodbye
