About a young man's dreams, his journey, the winding road, never giving up. All ties back to the place he comes from, a town they once called Roundabout.

Lyrics

he comes from a town they once called roundabout
where the river bends and the ships would wind their way
through the land where later on they cut a big canal, they dug it out
but some still went the roundabout way

then someone built a factory on the riverbank in that little town
where men would make fine bricks shaped from its clay
and break their backs in the brickyards sunup to sundown
they were glad to work in those down and out days

so the story goes a young man from that same old town
thought he had to leave his home to make his mark
he got up one day before the dawn without a sound
and made up his mind that morning in the dark

with a pickup truck, a suitcase and a box of dreams
a baseball glove to cushion his guitar
he set out on the road to "not quite what it seems"
and made a wish upon a falling star

he comes from a town they once called roundabout
where the river bends and the ships would wind their way
through the land where later on they cut a big canal, they dug it out
but some still went the roundabout way
some still went the roundabout way

down to dallas, up to boulder, then out to l.a.
& back home again on a tour of one night stands
he fell in love and married her along the way
when she'd been gone six months, he took off his wedding band

he loved and lost not once but twice till true love called
ah, the third time was the charm, i understand
when some won't even give their hearts a second chance to fall
they keep it safe from harm, but not this man

'cause he comes from a town they once called roundabout
though, "he won't make it", i heard some folks say
between you and me, don't ever count him out
he'll just go the roundabout way
he'll just go the roundabout way

when the road you're on tries to shoot your dreams all full of doubt
you just play this song one time and say
whatever you may do, don't ever count me out
i'll just go the roundabout way
i just go the roundabout way
i just go the roundabout way

i come from a town they once called roundabout
