I can’t help but wonder

I can't help but wonder (where I'm bound)

Tom Paxton

. RA, Spanish 2004

It's a long and a dusty road
It's a hot and a heavy load
And the folks that I meet ain't always kind
Some are bad, some are good
Some have done the best they could
Some have tried to ease my troubled mind
  And I can't help but wonder where I'm bound, where I'm bound
  I can't help but wonder where I'm bound

I have wandered thru this land
Just a doing the best I can
Tryin to find what I was meant to do
And the people that I see
Look as worried as can be
And it looks like they are a wondering, too

And I had a buddy back home
But he started out to roam
I hear he's out by Frisco Bay
And sometimes when I've had a few
His old voice comes a ringing thru
And I'm going out to see him some old day

If you see me passing by
And you sit and you wonder why
And if you wish that you were a rambling too
Nail your shoes to the kitchen floor
Lace them up and bar the door
Thank your stars for the roof that's over you
