Long Way Around
by Dixie Chicks



my friends from highschool
married their highschool boyfriends
moved into houses
in the same ZIP code where their parents live

But I, I could never follow
No I, I could never follow

I hit the highway
in a pink RV with stars on the ceiling
lived like a gypsy
six strong hands on the steering wheel

i've been a long time gone now
maybe someday, someday i'm gonna settle down
but i've always found my way somehow
by taking the long way

Taking the long way around
taking the long way
taking the long way around

I met the Queen of Whatever
Drank with the Irish and smoked with the Hippies
moved with the shakers
wouldn't kiss all the asses that they told me to

No I, I could never follow
No I, I could never follow

It's been two long years now
since the top of the world came crashing down
And i'm gettin' it back on the road now
but i'm taking the long way

taking the long way around
taking the long way
taking the long way around

I'll just take my time, I won't lay down
and take the long way around

Well, ifought with a stranger and i met myself
I opened my mouth and i heard myself
it can get pretty lonely when you show yourself
Guess, i could of made it easier on myself

But I, I could never follow
No I, I could never follow

Well, I never seem to do it like anybody else
maybe someday, someday i'm gonna settle down
if you ever want to find me i can still be found
taking the long way

taking the long way around
taking the long way
taking the long way around

I'm taking the long way
taking the long way around
i'm taking the long way
taking the long way around

I'm taking the long way
taking the long way around
taking the long way
taking the long way around
