I'd like to hike the Appalachian
I've tossed it around in my mind
But then I say to myself
Boy you must be crazy
Don't you know you'll never have the time
I'd like to go into the city
Maybe travel for a while
Hitch a ride, now there's something I can do
But I've never been more than a mile
And it might take forever
But I am all I have to show
There is a missing piece
To find before I go
Three words away from a masterpiece
Ten thousand miles from my home
And all my greed
And three hungry mouths to feed
I don't know if I can make it on my own
And yet it's raining up on Sharp Top
My spirit's molding me like clay
I guess we should have built further from the river bank
It's trying to wash us all away

And it might take forever
But we are all we have to show
There is a missing piece
To find before we go
This morning's battle, population
On the city street below
And Lord I dread to get up out of bed
Five million footprints in the snow
And it might take forever
But I am all I have to show
There is a missing piece
To find before I go
