Shooter Jennings Summer Dreams Lyrics

Summer dreams blow like leaves through these city streets

With the autumn they are gone

Busy people shuffling don’t know where they’re going

They just go till they hit a wall

Not me no no not me

I want to go where the air is clean

For awhile let the stream carry my pain

Waste away the days until it’s time to ride away

Into the cold desert sunset and the warm mountain rain

Going to throw my damned old phone off the downtown bridge

Leave my briefcase on the train

Going to walk a mile right up this island

And go away before I go insane

You don’t know but there’s a lonesome cowboy

Underneath these cold city clothes

I have the mind to leave it all behind

And go where a high-rise won’t grow

I wanna go

I want to go where the air is clean

For awhile let the stream carry my pain

Waste away the days until it’s time to ride away

Into the cold desert sunset and the warm mountain rain

Summer dreams blow like leaves through these city streets

With the autumn they are gone

Busy people shuffling don’t know where they’re going

They just go till they hit a wall
