Johnnyswim – Goodbye Road lyrics




[Verse 1]
I left my dear trying to find adventure
She spent years trading my whiskey out for seltzer
Still I hear her voice in the pit of my failure
I ride alone down Goodbye Road
I kept my eyes tryna find better weather
Just to find it ain’t getting any better
And still I hear her voice so clear and so tender
It’s my tale to tell down Goodbye Road

[Chorus]
Strangers, outcasts, artists and thieves
Misfits, legends and lost refugees
We may not be where we thought we would be
We made our home down Goodbye Road

[Verse 2]
You said you were my queen, now you’re just an old disaster
I said sticks and stones shouldn’t be thrown from the pulpit pastor
And when I hear that voice I try to move a bit faster
I’d rather walk alone down Goodbye Road

[Chorus]
Strangers, outcasts, artists and thieves
Misfits, legends and lost refugees
We may not be where we thought we would be
We made our home down Goodbye Road

[Bridge]
Travelin’ Paul on the road to Damascus
The ghost of Saul, he laid down in a casket
Sometimes flowers grow in the soil of ashes
Pick ’em as you go down Goodbye Road

[Chorus]
Strangers, outcasts, artists and thieves
Misfits, legends and lost refugees
We may not be where we thought we would be
We made our home down Goodbye Road
*Hum Amazing Grace*
Sometimes flowers grow in the soil of ashes
Pick ’em as you go down Goodbye Road
We made our home down Goodbye Road
