You've long been on the open road, you've been sleepin' in the rain
From dirty words and muddy cells, your clothes are soiled and stained
But the dirty words and the mud of cells, will soon be judged insane
So only stop and rest yourself and you'll be off again

Oh, take off your thirsty boots and stay for awhile
Your feet are hot and weary from a dusty mile
And maybe I can make you laugh and maybe I can try
Lookin' for the evenin' and the mornin' in your eyes

Then tell me of the ones you saw, as far as you could see
Across the plains from field to town, marchin' to be free
And of the rusted prison gates, that tumble by degree
Like laughing children one by one, they look like you and me

So take off your thirsty boots and stay for awhile
Your feet are hot and weary from a dusty mile
And maybe I can make you laugh and maybe I can try
Just lookin' for the evenin' and the mornin' in your eyes

I know you are no stranger down the crooked rainbow trail
From dancing cliff edge shattered sills, to slander shackled jails
Where the voices drift up from below, as walls are bein' scaled
Yes, all of this and more my friend your song shall not be failed

Oh, take off your thirsty boots and stay for awhile
Feet are hot and weary, from a dusty mile
And maybe I can make you laugh and maybe I can try
Just lookin' for the evenin' and the mornin' in your eyes

So take off your thirsty boots and stay for awhile
Feet are hot and weary from a dusty mile
And maybe I can make you laugh and maybe I can try
Lookin' for the evenin' and the mornin' in your eyes
