You Know I'm Going Nowhere ęDavid R. Field 2001


You know I'm going nowhere and the road is mighty slow,
You know I'm going nowhere 'cause there ain't nowhere to go.
I've tried the high ridges and the valleys so low.
You know I'm going nowhere 'cause there ain't nowhere to go.

Well, I know I'm gettin' nowhere and it gets to be a bore
'Cause I know I've been the same place 'bout a million times before.
I let my notions set my motions and I quicken up my pace
'Til I find my road's a circle and I'm back in this damn place.

Once I had myself a million; once or twice I've had a wife;
Once I had myself a good time; once I lived myself my life.
Once I tried to be successful, 'til I found out what it cost
So I lit out for the highway, and I seem to've gotten lost. Again.

INSTRUMENTAL

Well, my whole life's based on usin' words and phrases like, "Maybe so,"
And all my worldly wisdom's summed in sayin', "I don't know."
Though it sounds a bit confusing, there's a possibility
That the search of roads to nowhere is the road that sets us free.

Well, you know I'm going nowhere and the road is might slow,
Yeah, you know I'm going nowhere 'cause there ain't nowhere to go.
I've tried the high ridges and the valleys so low.
You know I'm going nowhere 'cause there ain't nowhere to go.
You know I'm going nowhere 'cause there ain't nowhere to go.
