Dave Van Ronk - Heart On The Run lyrics

I drove Route 66 fueled on wine and prayer

I rode the rails at night and drank away my cares

I joined the circus set fire in my mouth

Chased the holy light and took my troubles south

I've seen the ancient mariner stalked by the beast

The ancient warrior seeking visions in the east

Lonesome travelers and chronicles left home

Strangers in a stranger land whose luck has turned to stone

The roads like dreaming

It's worth its wait in gold

And I'm a dreamer

My soul will not be sold

Feet on the highway

And a head bound to the sun

Home's where the heart is, and my heart is on the run

Home's where the heart is, and my heart is on the run

So I'll take the road not taken

On the path that leads to hell

Walk the good night loving trail

By the hill where Jesus fell

And Heaven's just a stairway away

I can go anywhere when there's no where left to stay

The roads like dreaming

It's worth its wait in gold

And I'm a dreamer

My soul will not be sold

Feet on the highway

Head bound to the sun

Home's where the heart is, and my heart is on the run

Home's where the heart is, and my heart is on the run
