Who's body is this that I seem to belong to?
Who's voice keeps escaping? It can't be my own.
Dig for old roots that I can hold on to,
All that I ask is I find a way home.

And all through the years, the story's the same:
Everything changes except for my name.
I can't deny, though sometimes it pains me,
That I'm not the same man that I used to be.

All the days of my youth I can hardly remember
Or things that I said when I was someone else.
But days in the meadow, night drives in November
Ring in my ears, and they're clearer than bells.

I fell in the creek on New Year's day
And it scared me to know what my father would say.
Wrapped in a blanket, I knew I was young
When he played me a song Bob Dylan once sung.


I came here today to look back on the years
That were full of love letters, fistfights, and beers
That foamed in my mouth and foam in my head.
Some still hang around, some now are dead.
