Josh Ritter - Roll On Lyrics




West of her there's a place know
Never have been but I'd like to go
Somewhere out there I believe in me
And West of her is where I'd like to see
West of her there's another place
Sun shines soft on another face
And the river falls on another sea
And West of her is where I'd like to be

Roll on

I tried out-running you it didn't last
Everything that catches up must come to pass
And your voice is the one inside my head
I ended up out-running myself instead

Roll on

You'll probably end up thinking that I don't care
When you get a letter from a new somewhere
But i know you've got what you need to be
Happy someplace East of me

Roll on

    Roll On
    Josh Ritter

    West of her there's a place I know
    Never have been but I'd like to go
    Somewhere out there I believe in me
    And West of her is where I'd like to see
    West of her there's another place
    Sun shines soft on another face
    And the river falls on another sea
    And West of her is where I'd like to be

    Roll on

    I tried out-running you it didn't last
    Everything that catches up must come to pass
    And your voice is the one inside my head
    I ended up out-running myself instead

    Roll on

    You'll probably end up thinking that I don't care
    When you get a letter from a new somewhere
    But i know you've got what you need to be
    Happy someplace East of me

    Roll on

    @nickbagelboy I'd say check out "Wings" by him, and "Harrisburg", and to some extent "Best for Best". Those three, plus this one are my favorite songs by him.

    nickbagelboy

    Shit man, I didn't even see this or know that you replied. I just came back to this song for the first time in ages cause I just remembered it, and seen this!! Haha thanks dude/dudet!!!!

    GravityBee1

    No problem brotha! I hope you like em. :]

  7. GravityBee1

    This song is so great. I'm in love with this man. 

  8. nickbagelboy

    Is there any other Josh Ritter songs like this? Where his voice is this deep?? Its beautiful!!

  9. Faith Mackey

    I habe heard this song a dozen times, but I finally listened to the lyrics and they're soo beautiful! He can make letting go of someone sound so poetic, haha.

  10. Tim Welch

    This song is wonderful. I like to think its related to 'Best is for the Best'. The girl rejected him then he goes out west to try and forget her. And he sometimes thinks of her when he wears her shirt of fives and dimes.
