Mystic Journey Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

words and music by James Rider 

 

Just me and a friend roamin' around 

Him a magician and I was a clown 

Playin' the streets for a dollar a day 

Waitin' for the right time and a sign to lead the way 

 

Crossed over the border to a mystical land 

Sort of unexpected didn't quite understand 

On a razor's edge on a grain of sand 

Onward we wandered to the gates of oblivion 

 

On a roll of the dice we headed out west 

Where the sage and and the spice attracted us 

Shadows fell down like a dark groping hand 

Saw the teeth of the wolves and the blood of the lambs 

 

On a turn of the cards I lightened my load 

Throwing off fear for the weakness it holds 

On target and calm the vision was clear 

Beyond the mirage I took for granted was here 

 

On a flip of the coins we rode the coast 

Tryin' to make the most of every situation 

That we witnessed near at hand 

On a drifter's crusade all over the land 

 

Could it be in the stars in the passing of cars 

At a table in the bar in a turn of the cards 

In a change of your mind in the passing of time 

In a ribbon of rhyme just down the line 

 

Just me and a friend roamin' around 

Him a magician I was a clown 

Playin' the streets for a dollar a day 

Waitin' for the right time and a sign to lead the way
