Travelers Welcome

Travelers Welcome

Walking on the side of a dusty road;
Carrying a backpack full of yesterdays.

Hitchhiking:  Thumbing a ride into tomorrow.
Life passes me by.  I smile and wave.

Tomorrow I can put today in the backpack;
It’ll be a yesterday.

There’s a whole mess of ‘em in there
That are all pretty much like today.

Every once in awhile
There’s a different kind of today
That doesn't fit well with the yesterdays
That are already packed away in there.

I can feel the rustling
Of the commotion they cause.
