From the recording Walk This Road

She’s standin' on the gone side of leavin'.
She found a thumb and stuck it in the breeze.
She'll take anything that's goin' close to somewhere.
She can lay it down and live it like she please
She ain't goin' nowhere, she's just leavin'.
She ain't goin' nowhere she can't breathe in.
And she ain't goin' home, and that's for sure.
Well the wind had it’s way with her hair
And the blues had a way with her smile
And she had a way of her own
Like prisoners have a way with a file
She's not sitting down and cryin' on her suitcase.
She has no second thoughts by the road.
But she's got feelings that need some reparin'.
And she did not give a damn that it showed.
