I am living alone in a predictable life
I have a beautiful home, never speak to my wife.
But I've got a really nice car that I polish 'most everyday.
I'm starting to think as I am laying in bed.
Thoughts just circle around, never leaving my head.
I wonder what I'd be if I'd gone just a different way.

Bridge 1:
Looking all around and I'll be
Thinking of the towns that I'll see.
Think of all the clowns that I'll meet.
Think of all the cows that I'll see..
I think I want to go my own way.
Looking all around and I say

The corporate life just goes on forever.
Could use a little time without any pressure.
That rodeo life is sure looking better to me.

Always live in the dark, never seeing the sun.
It seems I never get out, never have any fun.
I cannot believe this is going on day after day.
Everyday I want to get up and scream
While I sit in my cube and I stare at my screen
I've got twenty five years to go until retirement day.

Bridge 2:
Think of all the fans that I'll meet
Cheering from the stands on their feet
Don't you understand that I'll be
Quite a different man can't you see?
I think I want to go my own way.
Looking all around and I say.

Bridge 3:
I just cannot accept
The way my life turned out to be.
If only I decided just to take some time to think.
And now I'm so responsible
I think I've lost my mind.
So I'm thinking I could go and leave this all behind.

Now I'm quitting my job, yes I'm going away.
And I'm leaving my home, yes I sold it today.
I bought a customized van with some bunk beds, pulled out the seats.
Now I'm out on the road and I'm having some fun.
I'm just moving along now the party's begun.
Believing that I won't go back now, what do you think?
