I try to travel around with less and less
Tried them all and the simple way is the way that's best
I save a lot of time not havin' to choose
What color shirt I wear or which pair of shoes
I don't need the guitar to sing my song
Wherever I land, I'll always get along

I've been up and down the road a time or two I guess
Now I try and travel around with less and less

I had a woman once, she was not my wife
I took a long detour on the road of life
I carried that weight and almost broke my back
I nearly lost the ones I loved getting' back on track
Wasted lots of time and I still feel the pain
Made a vow that I won't go through that again

I've been up and down the road a time or two I guess
Now I try to travel around with less and less

Coffee in the mornin', a little wine at night
A meal somewhere in the middle I think I'll be alright
I've got my pride, I got a smile to greet the day
I got a friend or two to help me through when I lose my way
Don't need the guitar to sing my song
Wherever I land, I'll always get along

I've been up and down the road a time or two I guess
Now it's time to travel around with less and less
I've been up and down the road a time or two I guess
Now I try to travel around with less and less
