When I was a traveler
I used to love to watch the rain
I'd stand under the downspout
Let the water cool my brain

I never thought to worry
If the river rose too high
That all the seeds we planted
Would get washed out with the tide

But now I am a man
And I need a place to hide

But there's nowhere to run
And there's no place to hide
Where the water runs free
And the mud starts to slide

When I was a young man
I could work through wind and rain
I never thought to worry
Had no reason to complain

I thought that I was standin'
On a rock so firm and strong
But it was easy then to see
Just what was right and what was wrong

But now I am a man
I won't be hangin' 'round too long

When I was a child
I used to love to watch the rain
I'd stand under the downspout
Let the water cool my brain

I never thought to worry
If the river rose too high
And all the dreams we planted
Would get washed out with the tide

But there's nowhere to run
And there's no place to hide
Where the water runs free
And the mud starts to slide

Where the water runs free
And the mud starts to slide
