Taking The Long Way Round

One of the many things I love about music is how songs take on different meanings as you go through various stages of your life.

Listening to this classic from the Dixie Chicks now I feel like it fits me so perfectly.

I’m not where I want to be but I’m on my way.

It doesn’t matter if your taking the long way round as long as you keep moving forward.

It’s all about progress✌🏻


My friends from high school 

Married their high school boyfriends 

Moved into houses in the same ZIP codes 

Where their parents live 

But I, I could never follow 

No, I, I could never follow 


I hit the highway in a pink RV with stars on the ceiling 

Lived like a gypsy 

Six strong hands on the steering wheel 

I’ve been a long time gone now 

Maybe someday, someday I’m gonna settle down 

But I’ve always found my way somehow 


By taking the long way 


Taking the long way around 

Taking the long way 

Taking the long way around 


I met the queen of whatever 

Drank with the Irish, and smoked with the hippies 

Moved with the shakers 

Wouldn’t kiss all the asses that they told me to 


No, I, I could never follow 

No, I, I could never follow 


It’s been two long years now 

Since the top of the world came crashing down 

And I’m getting’ it back on the road now 


But I’m taking the long way 

Taking the long way around 

I’m taking the long way 

Taking the long way around 

The long…

The long way around 


Well, I fought with a stranger, and I met myself 

I opened my mouth, and I heard myself 

It can get pretty lonely when you show yourself 

Guess I could have made it easier on myself 

But I, I could never follow 


No, I, I could never follow 

Well, I never seem to do it like anybody else 

Maybe someday, someday I’m gonna settle down 

If you ever want to find me, I can still be found 

Taking the long way 

Taking the long way around 

Taking the long way
