Lyrics

There is nothing in my pockets
Save some holes
And I thumb for a ride
To save my soles
I drag this six-string mule
That’s carried me
Across the stages of the road

But Kari waits for me in Athens
Kari waits for me in St Pete
Kari waits for me in Orlando
Kari waits for me back home

Sometimes you hear me
Sometimes you’re gone
But I’ll play just the same
For the sake of the song
Right here and now is where
And when and how
I want to be

But Kari waits for me in Alabama
Kari waits for me in Tennessee
Kari waits for me in Carolina
Kari waits for me back home

There are miles and sunrises
Smiles and surprises
Between here
And around the next street
Every day is a new life
Every place is a new sight
Every moment makes a memory

But for a dinner and a dollar
I’ll trade a song
Let me sleep on your floor tonight
I won’t stay long
Remember me when I come back again
I thank you for being a friend

But Kari waits for me in Knoxville
Kari waits for me in Johnson City
Kari waits for me in Asheville
Kari waits for me back home

Kari waits for me
Kari waits for me to come home
