about

An ode to the life of the touring musician - when you visit so many places with guitar and suitcase in hand, the hardest place to find is home.

lyrics

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
