Metallica – Wherever I May Roam lyrics

[Guitar Intro]

[Verse 1]
(And the road becomes my Bride)
And the road becomes my Bride
I have stripped of all but Pride
So in her I do confide
And she keeps me Satisfied
Gives me all I need
And the dust in throat I crave
Only knowledge will I save
To the game you stay a slave
Rover, Wanderer
Nomad, Vagabond
Call me what you will, yeah !

[Chorus]
Ouuuhhh,
But I'll take my time anywhere
Free to speak my Mind anywhere
And I'll redefine anywhere
Anywhere I roam
Where I lay my Head is home, yeah !

[Verse 2]
(And the Earth becomes my Throne)
And the Earth becomes my Throne
I adapt to the Unknown
Under wandering Stars I have grown
By myself but not alone
I ask No One!
And my ties are severed clean
Less I have the more I gain
Off the beaten path I reign
Rover, Wanderer
Nomad, Vagabond,
Call me what you will !
Yeah, you will !

[Chorus]
But I'll take my Time anywhere
I'm free to speak my Mind anywhere
And I never Mind anywhere
Anywhere I roam
Where I lay my Head is home, I swear !

[Solo]


[Chorus]
But I'll take my Time anywhere
I'm free to speak my Mind anywhere
And I'll take my Time anywhere
Anywhere I roam
Where I lay my Head is home, that's right
Right here, right now !

[Solo]

[Chorus]
But I'll take my Time anywhere
I'm Free to speak my Mind anywhere
And I'll redefine anywhere
Anywhere I roam
Where I lay my Head is home
Carved upon my stone
My body lies, but still I roam, yeah, yeah !

[Bridge]
Wherever I may roam,
Wherever I may roam, o-hooo !

[Outro]
Wherever I may roam,
Wherever I may roam, yeah !
Wherever I may wander, wander, wander!
Wherever I may roam, yeah ,yeah !
Wherever I may roam, yeah, yeah !
Wherever I may roam,
Wherever I may roam,
Wherever I may roam !!!

    The eponymous fifth album from thrash metal icons Metallica (also known as “The Black Album” for its dark cover) marked a huge shift in sound for the band, one which would catapult them into being the biggest band in the world, while arguably diluting the elements that had once made them so vital and influential.
    The album debuted at number one on 10 album charts (including 4 weeks at #1 on the Billboard), is certified 16x platinum in America and is the 24th best-selling album of all time (selling more copies than Bad, Nevermind and even Backstreet’s Back or …Baby One More Time). That actually makes it the highest selling album of the last 25 years.
    Oh, and it won them their third Grammy in a row.
    Produced by Bob Rock, the whole songwriting process and focus of the album changed from previous records. Lyrics were more introspective, songs were shorter, and Lars' drumming was simpler:
    When we started using Bob, it was because Bob made all the best rock records that were going on at that time. Everything that was going on in the late eighties was all about Bob Rock.
    - Lars “I killed Napster” Ulrich
    The album produced 5 singles:
    “Enter Sandman”
    “The Unforgiven”
    “Nothing Else Matters”
    “Wherever I May Roam”
    “Sad but True”
