can’t help but wonder where i’m bound lyrics – nanci griffith

it’s a long and dusty road
it’s a hot and heavy load
and the folks i meet ain’t always kind
some are bad and some are good
some have done the best they could
some have tried to ease my trouble in mind

and i can’t help but wonder where i’m bound
where i’m bound
i can’t help but wonder where i’m bound

i’ve been wandering through this land
just doin’ the best i can
tryin’ to find what i was meant to do
and the people that i see
look as worried as can be
and it looks like they are wanderin’, too

and i can’t help but wonder where i’m bound
where i’m bound
i can’t help but wonder where i’m bound

and i had me a buddy back home
but he started out to roam
and i hear, he’s out by frisco bay
and, sometimes when i’ve had a few
his old voice comes ringin’ through
and i’m goin’ out to see him some old day

if you see me p*ssin’ by
and you sit and you wonder why
and you wish that you were a rambler, too
just nail your shoes to the kitchen floor
lace ’em up and bar the door
thank your stars for the roof that’s over you
