MY TRAVELING STAR - James Taylor

video

Watch my back and light my way 
My traveling star, my traveling star 
Watch over all of those born St. Christopher's day 
Old road dog, young runaway 
They hunger for home but they cannot stay 
They wait by the door 
They stand and they stare 
They're already out of there 
They're already out of there 

My daddy used to ride the rails 
So they say, so they say 
Soft as smoke and as tough as nails 
Boxcar Jones, old walking man 
Coming back home was like going to jail 
The sheets and the blankets and babies and all 
No he never did come back home 
Never that I recall 

Never mind the wind 
Never mind the rain 
Never mind the road leading home again 
Never asking why 
Never knowing when 
Every now and then 
There he goes again 

She had a cat and a dog named Blue 
My traveling star, my traveling star 
A big old stove and a fireplace, too 
Old road dog, young runaway 
She told me she loved me like it was true 
I knew I should stay 
I knew I would go 
Run run run away 
Run run run away, boy 

Run before the wind 
Run before the rain 
Over yonder hill 
Just around the bend 
Never asking why 
Never knowing when 
Every now and then 
There you go again 

Tie me up and hold me down 
Oh, my traveling star 
Bury my feet down in the ground 
Oh, old road dog 
Claim my name from the lost and found 
And let me believe this is where I belong 
Shame on me for sure 
Sing me one more highway song 

My traveling star 
My traveling star
