Warren Haynes Wanderlust Lyrics

Waycross boy,

Self-medicated prophet

Freight train running through your heart

No way to stop it

The love of all the angels

Couldn’t fill the hole it left

Songs and whiskey eased the pain

But the weary never rest

Wanderlust

It’s bigger than the best of us

Like so many before you

You took the big bird to the west coast

But California gold ain’t what you craved most

Beauteous Harmony with your lover’s what you missed

But you can’t stop your rambling

Once your soul’s been kissed

Wanderlust

It’s bigger than the best of us

So many roads

So many shattered dreams

So much southern pride

Bursting at the seams

No talent hacks

Trying to tell you who you are

Waycross boy shoots the moon

Winds up a star

So you take the journey

Maybe for the last time

But your heart’s still beating

Somewhere in Carolina

And you’re still burning

Down by the Joshua tree

And we all come to see you now

In the garden of memories

Wanderlust

It’s bigger than the best of us
