Let me tell you baby
If you want to pin me down
Better get your hammer girl
And nail me to the ground
'Cause you won't find no grass stains
On the bottom of my feet
The only home I've ever known
Is out there on the streets


Chorus:
You call me insane
Honey, that's my middle name
And I don't care which way the wind will blow
'Cause I don't know
So down the road I go


You see I tried to settle down
Not too long ago
You can lock my body up
But you can't calm my soul
I don't want to hurt you
Or put you on a shelf
But my daddy told me all my life
You got to be yourself

Chorus:


I'm sure there's lots of guys out there
Who've learned to tow the line
Compared to them my life may look a wreck
But girl, you've been to college
So you should know by now
And if you can't understand me
What the hell did you expect

I'm giving you fair warning
I'm gonna say goodbye
And when I'm walkin out the door
Don't want to hear you cry
There's so much highway out there
That I ain't never seen
And all i need is cigarettes, guitars and gasoline


You call me insane
Honey, that's my middle name
And I don't care which way the wind will blow
'Cause I don't know
So honey down the road I go
Down the road I go
I'll see you around
'Cause I'm leavin town
Yeah, yeah, yeahhhh
