i got a name lyrics – jim croce

“i got a name”

like the pine trees lining the winding road
i got a name, i got a name
like the singing bird and the croaking toad
i got a name, i got a name
and i carry it with me like my daddy did
but i’m living the dream that he kept hid

moving me down the highway
rolling me down the highway
moving ahead so life won’t p*ss me by

like the north wind whistling down the sky
i’ve got a song, i’ve got a song
like the whippoorwill and the baby’s cry
i’ve got a song, i’ve got a song
and i carry it with me and i sing it loud
if it gets me nowhere, i go there proud

moving me down the highway
rolling me down the highway
moving ahead so life won’t p*ss me by

and i’m gonna go there free

like the fool i am and i’ll always be
i’ve got a dream, i’ve got a dream
they can change their minds but they can’t change me
i’ve got a dream, i’ve got a dream
well, i know i can share it if you want me to
if you’re going my way, i’ll go with you

moving me down the highway
rolling me down the highway
moving ahead so life won’t p*ss me by
moving me down the highway
rolling me down the highway
moving ahead so life won’t p*ss me by
