Tumbleweed ©

Joe Sharp
Stra'ven, Scotland
2005

Abandon all those earthly roots temptation of forbidden fruits
Set your burden baggage free kick your heels and follow me
Live a life of peaceful ease bowling along on a Kansas breeze
Like dandelion seeds on high kiss your apron strings goodbye

Lay to rest your twiddling thumbs feel the beating of the drums
Hear the tales of proud Navaho following trails of wild buffalo
Bouncing along gathering speed singing a song broadcasting seed
Like dandelion seeds on high kiss your apron strings goodbye

Leave behind the sparking logs come barking with the prairie dogs
Roll across wide desert plains Apache arrows and wagon trains
Bounding picking up a pace we runners in the tumbleweed chase
Like dandelion seeds on high kiss your apron strings goodbye

Not for you an empty sack a stumbling bumbling jumping Jack
Look there toward the far horizon see the smoke rings are arising
Drifting from the Cherokee nation a pipe of peace our destination
Like dandelion seeds on high kiss your apron strings goodbye

Be with me as sun is setting see the young buck with the netting
Catching driftwood for the fire this will be our funeral pyre
Our seeds are scattered on the plain the journey starts all over again
Like dandelion seeds on high kiss your apron strings goodbye
