Artist's Notes

I wrote this song inspired by the movie "Nomadland" and by an artist friend of mine that has been traveling the USA in his van since Nov. of 2020.

I admire those that can give up most of their belongings and wander the world.

I guess I am still possessed by material things.


Lyrics

Rubber Tramp

Words and Music © 2021 by Brent Godfrey

 

Verse 1:

Everything that I own is in this van

I explore the great wild world as I explore my inner self

Not controlled by society or material things

I?m blessed by the friends that I make and the gifts than nature brings

 

Chorus:

I?m a Rubbertramp      I?m a Gypsy Man

I?m a Wanderer In Nomad Land

I?m not Homeless I?m Houseless

I travel this road alone

Not sure what I?m looking for, when I find it I?ll know

 

Verse 2:

I hit the road to live in peace and artistry 

My wife was a dreamer, her heart was full of hope

I still hear her voice when the wind whispers through the leaves

And I see her silhouette in the shadows of the trees

 

Chorus

 

Verse 3

I don?t miss my old life anymore

I?ve found beauty in nature and truth in it?s silence

I don?t need all the things I used to have

Give me my health and my freedom and I?lll be a Happy Man

 

Chorus

I?m a Rubbertramp      I?m a Gypsy Man

I?m a Wanderer  In Nomad Land
