I went out walking through the streets paved with goldLifted some stonesSaw the skin and bonesOf a city without a soulI went out walking under an atomic skyWhere the ground won't turnAnd the rain it burnsLike the tears when i said goodbye
Yeah i went with nothingNothing but the thought of youI went wandering
I went drifting through the capitals of tinWhere men can't walkOr freely talkAnd sons turn their fathers inI stopped outside a church houseWhere the citizens like to sitThey say they want the kingdomBut they don't want god in itI went out riding, down that ol'eight laneI passed by a thousand signsLooking for my own name
I went with nothingBut the thought you'd be there, tooLooking for you
I went out there in search of experienceTo taste and to touch and to feel's as muchAs a man can before he repents
I went out searching, looking for one good manA spirit who would not bend or breakWho could sit at his father's right handI went out walking with a bible and a gunThe word of god lay heavy on my heartI was sure i was the oneNow jesus, don't you wait upJesus, i'll be home soonYea i went out for the papersTold her i'd be back by noon
Yeah i left with nothingBut the thought you'd be there tooLooking for you...
Yeah i left with nothingNothing but the thought of you...I went wandering
