Bruce Springsteen – The Wayfarer (Lyrics | Audio)

Lyrics “The Wayfarer” by Bruce Springsteen

It’s the same sad story, love and glory
Going ’round and ’round
It’s the same old cliché, a wanderer on his way
Slippin’ from town to town

Some find peace here on the sweet streets
The sweet streets of home
Where kindness falls and your heart calls
For a permanent place of your own

I’m a wayfarer, baby
I drift from town to town
When everyone’s asleep
And the midnight bells sound
My wheels are hissin’ up the highway
Spinning ’round and ’round

You start out slow in a sweet little bungalow
Something two can call home
Then rain comes fallin’, the blues come calling
And you’re left with a heart of stone

Some folks are inspired sitting by the fire
Slippers tucked under the bed
But when I go to sleep I can’t count sheep
For the white lines in my head

I’m a wayfarer, baby
I roam from town to town
When everyone’s asleep
And the midnight bells sound
My wheels are hissin’ up the highway
Spinning ’round and ’round

Where are you now..③

I’m a wayfarer, baby
I roam from town to town
When everyone’s asleep
And the midnight bells sound
My wheels are hissin’ up the highway
Spinning ’round and ’round

I’m a wayfarer, baby
Wayfarer, baby..⑧…
