Lyrics

Wanderlust

I tried to warn her from the start
But she never wanted to hear
I'm prone to have a change of heart
And I suddenly disappear

It's somethin' in the cold night air
And when I hear it callin' my name
I picture all that waits out there
And I climb right into the frame

Oh oh, wanderlust
That evil curse
Oh oh, wanderlust
There's nothin' worse

Now there were certain ways I knew
That it had a hold of my brain
Every time the whistle blew
I hated missin' the train

And then I saw a sparrow die
And I felt no sense of remorse
And makin' that poor woman cry
Was a simple matter of course

Oh oh, wanderlust
That evil curse
Oh oh, wanderlust
There's nothin' worse

She wrote um' all a song to sing
When they lay me down in the grave
Somethin' 'bout a sorry thing
That took much more than he gave

She could bitch and she could yell
And she could put up a fight
'Said there'd come a day in hell
When I'd finally know she was right

Oh oh, wanderlust
That evil curse
Oh oh, wanderlust
There's nothin' worse

I started walkin' for the door
With the old man settin' his sights
Down the barrel of a 44
and he wadn't lookin' polite

Then her mamma cried out "Slim
Better hang that thang on the wall
Ain't no use in killin' him
It's a mess ta' clean up & all"

Oh oh, wanderlust
That evil curse
Oh oh, wanderlust
There's nothin' worse
Oh oh, wanderlust
That evil curse
Oh oh, wanderlust
There's nothin' worse
