Ridin' the Wind!
By: Wayne Brown
Pack up your suitcase; get ready to stride
Dust off that thumb and catch us a ride
hitchin’ to nowhere; thumbin’ back again
Out seeing the world and ridin’ the wind
Crank the old Harley, get the engine a speedin’
We’re off on a trip, headin’ out for Eden
Run down the road and back up it again
Not a care in the world, just ridin’ the wind
Saddle up your pony and be ready to run
We’re ridin’ westbound at first light of sun
Galloping to where the starry sky begins
Soakin’ up the world; ridin’ the wind
Take along Sally and her blonde cousin too
They’re already crazy like both me and you
We’ll have us a time; the money we’ll spend
Takin’ in the world and ridin’ the wind
It don’t matter how you get there long as you go
Hitch a ride with a stranger or someone you know
If you need a ride just call on us my friend
We’ll show you the world while ridin’ the wind
See the hawk up above as it dips and dives
Riding on the thermals way up in the skies
Circling, climbing, then descending again
High above the world, ridin’ the wind
Pull up the anchor and coil up the lines
Roll out the sails, it’s casting off time
Chart the course, let the adventure begin
We’re off to see the world, ridin’ the wind
Life is too short; it just goes by way too fast
Nothing so good will long ever last
So let’s get living with the time left to spend
Let’s see the world and ride on the wind!
