Lyrics

Jim Croce

Like the pine trees lining the winding road,
I got a name, I got a name,
Like the singing bird and the croaking toad,
I got a name, I got a name.

And I carry it with me like my daddy did
But I'm living the dream that he kept hid.

[Chorus]
Moving me down the highway, rolling me down the highway
Moving ahead so life won't pass me by.

Like the north wind whistlin' down the sky,
I got a song; I got a song.
Like the whippoorwill and the baby's cry,
I got a song, I got a song,

And I carry it with me and I sing it loud,
If it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud.

[Chorus]

And I'm gonna go there free

Like the fool I am and I'll always be,
I got a dream, I got a dream.
They can change their minds but the can't change me,
I got a dream, I got a dream

Oh, I know I could share it if you'd want me to,
If you're goin' my way, I'll go with you.

[Chorus]
