Where are you goin' there?
With your suitcase by the back porch stairs
With my heart in your hand
In this cold December wind again

Cafes and bars are closed
Christmas lights are veiled in snow
Where are you goin'?
My brave companion of the road

It seems to me that you are lonelier
Than I've ever seen you be
And it's plain to see
That you've gone crazier
Than you ever thought you'd be

When the lights go down
And the dance floor is empty
And the crowd is goin' home
I will be waitin' for my
Brave companion of the road

Some days come up roses
Some days just come and go
Some nights are so ruthless
That you can't recall the day before

This love has seen better days
Than home for these holidays
'Cuz this love has miles for sense of place
For my brave companion of the road

It seems to me that you are lonelier
Than I've ever seen you be
And it's plain to see
That you've gone crazier
Than you ever thought you'd be

When the lights go down
And the dance floor is empty
And the crowd is goin' home
I will be waitin' for my
Brave companion of the road

Tell me, where are you goin'?
My brave companion of the road
I will always be waitin'
For my brave companion of the road
