The Grass Gypsys: Listen

The Travelin' Song

(The Grass Gypsys)
February 22, 2008
Words & Music: Justin & Colleen Kleya
Written in the Fall of 2006 before we took off on our first cross country tour. This is us projecting into the future, of what we hoped the road might hold for us, and as it turned out, it's pretty right on.
I’m packing all the things I’ve carried around
my whole life - like many pack-rats do.
Sold, stored, given away – I don’t
need much anyway, traveling making
music my whole life.

I’ve traded my sports-car for an
ole’school motorhome. Left my
piano with my friends.
So I’ll play on these here strings
and hope that I remembered everything,
traveling making music my whole life.

Don’t know where I’m going, or
how long I will stay. The thrill of new places
gets me going everyday, and I hope I meet
kind people all along the way,
traveling making music my whole life.
