Even Tumbleweeds Travel Far

from New Lyrics - Unreleased Songs

Growing up in a one horse town
Edge of the world when the sun goes down
City boys come out to play
Kick up the dirt and the roses fade

12 years old, what to believe
Learnin’ life from a TV screen
Waiting for the world to come through her door
Looking for God in the big mall store

Chorus:
Have a little faith for the way things could be
Shine a little light through the crack of an open door
Blow a little hope to this little girl
Throw a little rope to climb out of that world
Hey yeah – oh yeah

He’s stealing time to run away
The neighbors know why he doesn’t stay
Love at home comes and goes
The shade between the sunshine grows

Let’s take them to the meadow breeze
Peaches from the homestead trees
Write a song about the pain
Let the ink dry with the rain

Chorus:
Have a little faith for the way things could be
Shine a little light through the crack of an open door
Blow a little hope to this young man
Throw a little rope – he’ll climb out, I know he can
Hey yeah – oh yeah

I heard them say…
At least the stars at night don’t fade
Send up a prayer for better days
Wish a wish upon this star
Even tumbleweeds travel far

Chorus:
So, have a little faith for the way things could be
Shine a little light through the crack of my open door
Blow a little hope to my heart when it hurts
Throw a little rope – I’ll climb out through your words
Throw a little rope – I’ll climb out through your words
Hey yeah – oh yeah....
