"Airstream Song" as written by Miranda Lambert and Natalie Hemby....
Sometimes I wish I lived in Airstream homemade curtains
Lived just like a gypsy
Break her heart and roll out of town
Cause gypsies never get tied down

Sometimes I wish I lived on a mountain
Drank from a stream
Instead of a fountain
I'd stay there, on top of the world
But I was born a red dirt girl

Unbridled, or tethered in tide
Safety of the fence
Or the danger of the ride
I'll always be unsatisfied

Sometimes I wish I lived by a pier
In a lighthouse with a chandelier
I'd watch everybody's ships come in
And then I'd sail away with them

Unanchored in a storm
Or save me on the shore
If this is all I need
Why do I want more

Sometimes I wish I lived in Airstream homemade curtains
Live just like a gypsy

    General Commentthis is one of my favourite songs by miranda, ever. it has such a yearning feel to it and she makes the gypsy life seem so liberating. the lyrics are simple and lovely and just wishing for a life about the simple things. being able to pick up roots and leave and wander around carefree and breaking hearts. love the nod to emmylou harris [but i was born a red dirt girl]. whole song makes me feel wistful.

    General CommentLambert explained this acoustic country swing number, which was inspired by a 1980 Merle Haggard song: "I've been obsessed with Airstreams for a while now. I don't really know why. Don't have one, don't need one. But I want one! I always do 'The Way I Am' by Merle in my show, if I have an encore, just because I love that song, and it's not right not to play a Merle song on stage. I was telling Blake (Shelton) one day, 'There's a song missing that I haven't written yet.' He said, 'Why don't you go write "The Way I Am" for you?' And I did. That song is definitely, what if I wasn't doing this? What if I could just fly away out of my body for a day?"
