don't laugh

So, I know I mentioned my love for Dolly Parton, but I don't think you all really understand the depth of my affection for this woman.
Yes, 9-5 is one of my all time favorite songs
Yes, I got super excited when she was on American Idol
Yes, I own Steel Magnolias, and I think she is the best part of the movie...
But on top of that, she is probably in my top 5 fave musicians. No joke.
On my newest playlist on my ipod, i have 2 Justin Timberlake songs, 1 Dave Matthews song, 1 Led Zepp, some other random people and 5... yes 5 Dolly songs. She is the queen of my ipod right now.
Anyway, this is one of my favorite Dolly songs.
You should download it... but here are the lyrics
Travelin' Thru
(PS- I will include the footage of Jason Castro singing it on Idol. I was thrilled that my favorite AI person sang it!)
Well I can't tell you where I'm going, I'm not sure of where I've been
But I know I must keep travelin' till my road comes to an end
I'm out here on my journey, trying to make the most of it
I'm a puzzle, I must figure out where all my pieces fit

Like a poor wayfaring stranger that they speak about in song
I'm just a weary pilgrim trying to find what feels like home
Where that is no one can tell me, am I doomed to ever roam
I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin' on

Questions I have many, answers but a few
But we're here to learn, the spirit burns, to know the greater truth
We've all been crucified and they nailed Jesus to the tree
And when I'm born again, you're gonna see a change in me

God made me for a reason and nothing is in vain
Redemption comes in many shapes with many kinds of pain
Oh sweet Jesus if you're listening, keep me ever close to you
As I'm stumblin', tumblin', wonderin', as I'm travelin' thru
I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin' thru
I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin' thru


Goodbye little children, goodnight you handsome men
Farewell to all you ladies and to all who knew me when
And I hope I'll see you down the road, you meant more than I knew
As I was travelin', travelin', travelin', travelin', travelin' thru
I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin'
Drifting like a floating boat and roaming like the wind
Oh give me some direction lord, let me lean on you
As I'm travelin', travelin', travelin', thru
I'm just travelin', travelin', travelin', I'm just travelin' thru

Like the poor wayfaring stranger that they speak about in song
I'm just a weary pilgrim trying to find my own way home
Oh sweet Jesus if you're out there, keep me ever close to you
As I'm travelin', travelin', travelin', as I'm travelin' thru
