Gone Before You Met Me - text

I had a dream last night
I was floating down that black water
Kicked back on the Mississippi
On a raft with ole Tom Sawyer

He got restless down ‘round Memphis
That’s where he left me
He said I’m one rambling man
I was gone before you met me

Then there I was back in my hometown
That’s just how dreams go
My thumb in the air, wanted outta there
Had my eye on the road

Well I hitched a ride with this beatnik guy
He said looks like you read me
My name is Jack Kerouac
And I was gone before you met me

You got your homeboys
Your hang-around boys
You fix that roof, put your roots in the ground boys
Pink house, white fence
Pretty little woman, 2.5 kids
Dang right, it’s a good life
But boys like me are born to run the wild side
Like the restless wind you’ll never catch me
I was gone before you met me

Then just before I awoke
I had a bad nightmare
I was on some lost highway
And you were nowhere near
Someone took your hand, I wasn’t that man
Girl it sure did hit me
I was cussing fate, I was too late
You were gone before you met me

Then I smelled that coffee and heard you singing in the kitchen
Walked in, got a kiss, you said the sink’s still dripping
Thank God it’s still drippin’

You got your homeboys
Your hang-around boys
You fix that sink, put your roots in the ground boys
Blue house, white fence
Sweet little woman rockin’ that goodness
Dang right it’s a fine life
This restless heart found a heart I can call mine
I was smart enough to let love catch me
So Tom and Jack just ramble on without me
Cause I was gone before you met me
Gone, gone, gone before you met me
Gone before you met me
