These old boots still got a lot of ground
They ain't covered yet
There's at least another million miles under these old bus treads
So if you think I'm gonna settle down huh
I've got news for you
I've still got a lot of leavin left to do

And as long as there's a song left in this old guitar
This life I'm bound to lead ain't for the faint of hearts
So you wont fall for me, ya know what's good for you
Cause I still got a lot of leavin' left to do

Guess the lord made me hard to handle
So lovin' me might be a long shot gamble
So before you go and turn me on
Be sure that you can turn me loose
Cause I still got a lot of leavin left to do

Girl you look like you might be an angel, so I won't lie
I could love you like the devil, you wanted me to tonight
And we could talk about forever for a day or two
But I still got a lot of leavin left to do

Guess the lord made me hard to handle
So lovin' me might be a long shot gamble
So before you go and turn me on
Be sure that you can turn me loose
Cause I still got a lot of leavin left to do
Yeah I still got a lot of leavin left to do

    I think this song means that loving a free spirit is hard, but doable. So, if you want love a free spirit, you better have a lot of patience. A free spirit is hard to control, but let it leave every now and then and you'll be fine.
