The Long Way Around Lyrics

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
Taking the long way
Taking the long way around

Oh, I'll just take my time, I won't lay down
And take 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
Taking the long way around
I'm taking the long way
Taking the long way around
I'm taking the long way
Taking the long way around
I'm taking the long way
Taking the long way around
I'm taking the long way
(Taking the long way around)
