lyrics

I left my dear old parents and started out on the road
Just like Ramblin’ Robin and the tramps who went before
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
Baptized out on the road
Anywhere but here
I caught a freight for the west just outside of my hometown
With a backpack and a bedroll and swore I’d never hop back down
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
Baptized out on the road
Anywhere but here
When I made to jump off the train, my legs were numb and stiff
They buckled when I hit the ground and I lit down in a ditch
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
Baptized out on the road
Anywhere but here
I hung out with some rough folks, we went in on a scam
But the blame was mine when the cops came and the jailhouse my new home
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
Baptized out on the road
Anywhere but here
I got out in the winter, got told to leave Colorado Springs
With a thin coat and broken boots, I headed north on up the range
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
Baptized out on the road
Anywhere but here
Bummin’ around Montana, I thumbed all the way to Missou
Got drunk down by the Top Hat, they said I’d better push on through
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
Baptized out on the road
Anywhere but here
This ain’t the life I want, I’m telling you the truth
Gonna get my things together and get on back to Duluth
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
Baptized out on the road
Anywhere but here
