    Lyrics

    I spent all day staring at a leaf
    I know that my time here is brief
    I'd like to get some details down
    Before I move on to another town

    I met a man, he lost both arms
    He got 'em caught up in her charms
    She took the kids and the color TV
    He said, "I wish she'd taken the rest of me"

    This travelin' life, well, it ain't no good
    I'd quit it, honey, oh, if I could
    A puzzle to me why I even care
    The missing pieces are everywhere

    He drove to Dixie to hush his mouth
    She started talkin', like to wore him out
    But they found love 'neath the southern stars
    And some bruises and some scars

    He sees her on that back porch swing
    And I believe he would do anything
    Stand all night in the pourin' rain
    To wash her memory from his brain

    This travelin' life, well, it ain't no good
    I'd quit it, honey, oh, if I could
    A puzzle to me why I even care
    The missing pieces are everywhere

    A false move here, a stumble there
    A box of letters and a lock of hair
    That's all that's left when I turn out the light
    I count the missing pieces every night

    This travelin' life, well, it ain't no good
    I'd quit it, honey, oh, if I could
    A puzzle to me why I even care
    The missing pieces are everywhere

    This travelin' life, well, it ain't no good
    I'd quit it, honey, oh, if I could
    A puzzle to me why I even care
    The missing pieces are everywhere

    The missing pieces are everywhere
