Song Description

This song is about being homeless. Ken's lyrics were inspired by the dirty 30's but I think the song still rings true today.

Story Behind the Song

This song was co-written with Ken Matthiesen. I had never written a blues song before but Ken's concept made it easy. His lyrics are always awesome.

Broadjam Member Reviews

There's a nice feel to this tune and the organ adds a very nice touch. The vocal is clear and the guitar is nice and not over powering. Well done.

    - David J. Hentosh

This is as smooth as smooth blues gets. It's a song about getting drunk and trying to forget...a sad subject, but it's portrayed so well. All aspects of this song stand out GREAT: The convincing vocals, stellar instrumentation and flawless production. There are some really great and original word pictures here...the shattered glass, fire in the barrel. Favorite lyric: Smile hurts...never let it show. The bridge is especially well written. The outro/ending is especially nicely executed. Great job!

Lyrics

The cold out in the street
Gets by my pint of gin
Tells me it's time to go
Forget about everything again

The fire in the barrel
Can't warm this worthless soul
Empty faces in my bottle
Always end up in control

(Chorus)
It's time to head on down the road
I won't stop until I get where I go
"Nice to meet you, my name is Johnny Doe"
The smile hurts but you never let it show

Drowned is the memory
Of the man I used to know
When it all gets too heavy
It's time for me to go

The fire in the barrel
We stand around and sing
Drawn to the devil
I can hardly feel a thing

(Chorus)
It's time to head on down the road
When I get there I'll be the last to know
"Nice to meet you, my name is Johnny Doe"
The smile hurts but you never let it show

(bridge)
Broken glass on the sidewalks along with shattered dreams
Every morning I wake up, I wonder where I've been

(outro)
It's time to head on down the road
Ahead of the cold
I feel it in my bones
Time to head it down the road
Ahead of the cold
Head on down the road
