TRAVELIN’ CHILD

I’ve been covering a lot of new ground
I’m a traveling child in brand new town
Movin’, hey I’m movin’ on

I keep one hand on the drivin’ wheel
while the other holds on to that ribbon of steel
Movin’, hey I’m movin’ on

I’m gonna move like the river, gonna move like a train
Move like lovers in the evening rain
Move like a hurricane, reckless and wild
Move like God’s own travelin’ child
Move like God’s own travelin’ child

If you can’t keep up, then you gotta let go
Just can’t teach you what you already know
Movin’, hey I’m movin’ on

Love is gonna dynamite you off of that rock
Make you take chances like you never thought
Movin’, hey I’m movin’ on

I’m gonna move like the river, gonna move like the sea
Move like love comin’ back to me
Move like a hurricane, reckless and wild
Move like God’s own travelin’ child
Move like God’s own travelin’ child

I’m gonna move like the river, gonna move like the sea
Move like grace through eternity
Move like a hurricane, reckless and wild
Move like God’s own travelin’ child
Move like God’s own travelin’ child

When the stars come out and I’m restin’ my head
Lookin’ down the road at the life I’ve led
Movin’, hey I’m movin’ on

Like a mockingbird in the whistlin’ wind,
singing his song to a long lost friend
Movin’, hey I’m movin’ on

I’m gonna move like the river, gonna move like a train
Move like love coming back again
Move like a hurricane, reckless and wild
Move like God’s own travelin’ child
Move like God’s own travelin’ child
