Travis     -Jeff Wickland / Dave Coleman

Travis lived cross town by the railroad track
Just him, his dad, and four dying walls of a shotgun shack

His mind was restless it ached and it growned
He walked this town, head hung down, most days he stayed stoned

Dogs found him laying by the trestle out in the rain
Wasn’t much left, his old flannel, just torn and plain

He’d walked out alone deep into the black
Travis and a thirty eight, the night he never came back

How could it happen 
To one of our own
How did Travis
Live and die alone

The town swore we would change, but life goes on
Few years went by, fuss died down, 'til we all forgot he was gone

Now we all drive by that rail road track
And few recall the boy Travis, and the night he never came back
