As I roam through this land with guitar and case in hand There's a place that I dwell I return there when I can But it’s hard to get home, all these highways all these roads Join the dots, make it work, little doggie chase the bone And I play and I sing To the people I bring I’ve got the traveling salesman problem everywhere I go I go from A to B but never quite end up at home With you At home with you Get up late, hit the road, as I head out far from home Make a stop, grab some food, but the morning seems so rude Take your time, hurry up, set up, play and then pack up All the time in the world, but no time to just catch up And I meet such nice folk Then I say goodbye again I’ve got the traveling salesman problem everywhere I go I go from A to B but never quite end up at home With you At home with you At home with you At home with you And oh the lonely days And oh the lonesome nights And oh the lonely days And oh those lonesome nights I’ve got the traveling salesman problem everywhere I go I go from A to B but never quite end up at home I’ve got the traveling salesman problem everywhere I go I go from A to B but never quite end up at home No I never quite end up at home No I never quite end up at home With you
