Like a restless leaf in the Autumn breeze,
Once, I was a tumbleweed.
Like a rolling stone, cold and all alone,
Livin' for the day my dream  would come.
I never cared for school or any golden rule.
Papa used to always say I was a useless fool.
So I left my home to show 'em they was wrong
And headed out on the road singin' my songs.
Then one sunny day, the man, he looked my way
And everything that I dreamed of, it was real.
Money, girls, and cars; big long cigars.
And I caught the first plane home so Papa would see.
When I went home to show 'em they was wrong
All that I found was two tombstones.
Somebody tell me, please, was I right or wrong?
Lord, it's such a sad song.
First I got lost, then I got found
But the ones that I loved were in the ground.
Papa, I only wish you could see me now.
Take a listen Papa:

If there's any way that you can hear what I say:
Papa, I never meant to do you wrong.
All the money, girls, and cars,
And all the world's long cigars,
Papa, I just want you to know,
They couldn't take your place.
When I went home to show 'em they was wrong,
All that I found was two tombstones.
Somebody tell me please, was I right or wrong?
Lord, it's such a sad song.
First I got lost, then I got found 
But the ones that I loved were in the ground.
Somebody tell me, please, was I right or wrong?
