Tumbleweed

What do you with an empty nest? Well, there's painting, purging, cleaning....and songwriting.

This tune is from our upcoming CD, Still Strong. Inspired by our son Max's journey to Israel -- and the many journeys that led up to it.

Tumbleweed
words and music by Erin Friedman

You rode in on an autumn wind
Bright blues eyes, dimpled grin
Destined for a long walk to Jerusalem
Let the goodbye bonfire blaze
Sparks rise send you on your way
If smoke gets in my eyes I’ll be okay
 
Fly and when you hit the ground keep runnin’
Tumbleweed keep tumblin’
Into the great unknown
Fly and when you hit the ground keep runnin’
Tumbleweed keep tumblin’
Where blessed breezes blow
 
Your bloodline rode a North Sea gale
Prairie wind and SP Rail
Carry on tradition, blaze an ancient trail
Tumbleweed seeks Promised Land
Every generation has
An invitation written in His hand
 
Fly and when you hit the ground keep runnin’
Tumbleweed keep tumblin’
Into the great unknown
Fly and when you hit the ground keep runnin’
Tumbleweed keep tumblin’
Where blessed breezes blow
 
Always something of a wild weed about you
Easterly won’t leave here without you
Never had any doubt you were born to fly
 
Fly and when you hit the ground keep runnin’
Tumbleweed keep tumblin’
Into the great unknown
Fly and when you hit the ground keep runnin’
Tumbleweed keep tumblin’
Where blessed breezes blow

    So beautiful, I can't swallow for the lump in my throat.
