sedalia blues

I never set foot in your hometown
you never took a step in mine
but I feel the wheels are turning
and I think it might be time

I wanna breathe the air it gave you
I wanna feel that sun go down
I wanna wallow in your footsteps
down the streets of sedalia town

though I know your dreams had faded
mine have nothing left to lose
and you don't have to be in missouri
to sing sedalia blues

I chose a life that you'd forgotten
a life you said would let me down
but it's kept me fed and watered
and it's led to sedalia town

and though I might be torn and jaded
got no ego left to bruise
and I don't need to see missouri
I'll just sing sedalia blues


from Sedalia Blues, released June 1, 2016
