about

Every year, I watch the weather in late Spring, for a 4 or 5 day clear break in the Northwest rain and when it hits, I pack up my trusty old ’98 Ford Ranger pickup with firewood, a sleeping bag, a blue tarp, a cooler and of course my guitar. I head across the Columbia River into the Eastern Oregon sagebrush desert—as far as you can go southeast before you hit Nevada or Idaho. I stop into Fields (Population 12---when everyone’s home), fill the tank, and have the world’s best milkshake before ‘lighting out for the territory’ as Mark Twain put it.

I wrote it this for my neighbor ‘Whitey’. He lived across the street from me for 17 years and in his house for the better part of 60. He had an old 1960’s white Ford pickup truck--that he’d bought brand new---and regretted selling it so much that he went right out and bought another to take its place, even though his eyes were getting too bad to drive. He left me with some good stories, and reminded me that our time is short, precious and in the end, it’s all were really given. R.I.P.: Emmett J. ‘Whitey’ Christianson.

lyrics

Ain’t Done Ramblin’ Yet
By Dan Weber © 2015 Highway142Music (ASCAP)

I was talkin’ to my neighbor, I said “Son, do me a favor
Keep an eye on the place while I’m gone”
He asked me where I’m going; I said “I got no way of knowin’
But this time, it’s been too long

You see I need this vacation; I’m overdue in takin’
So I might be gone a while
What I crave is open road, and when I get there I’ll know”
It might take a little while but then again…

Chorus:
I Ain’t Done Ramblin’ Yet,
No, I Ain’t Done Ramblin’ Yet
‘Cause there’s still places I ain’t been, people I ain’t met
I Ain’t Done Ramblin’ Yet

I told him “When I was your age, I worked night and day
Tryin’ to get ahead in this life
But that was long before I knew, what you’re bound to learn too
That all we’re given is time

But they never say how long, so it’s best I’m movin’ on
There’s things I ain’t seen yet
And that’s the funny thing ‘bout age, my vision ain’t the same
But I see better then I ever have”…

Repeat Chorus

Chorus:
I Ain’t Done Ramblin’ Yet,
No, I Ain’t Done Ramblin’ Yet
‘Cause there’s still places I ain’t been, good people I ain’t met
I Ain’t Done Ramblin’ Yet

Repeat Chorus

I Ain’t Done…Not by a long shot…Ramblin’…Yet
