Steve Earle

I am just a pilgrim on this road, boys

This ain't never been my home

Sometimes the road was rocky 'long the way, boys

But I was never travelin' alone

We'll meet again on some bright highway

Songs to sing and tales to tell

But I am just a pilgrim on this road, boys

Until I see you fare thee well

Ain't no need to cry for me, boys

Somewhere down the road you'll understand

'Cause I expect to touch his hand, boys

Put a word in for you if I can
