"Glory Bound" as written by and Sexton....
Freedom came my way that night
Just like a jet plane In and out of sight
I was hauling ass at a million miles an hour
Wondering how hard I'd hit

When they came into the station
They said I was bad beyond repair
But I got no qualms with my situation
Say here I am

So say cheri cheri won't you dare to
Say cheri cheri won't you dare to
Leave a message and your number please
Tie them up all my old fantasies
Put them in a big red bow and send them care of me

I'm taking a chance on the wind
I'm packing all my bags
Taking a mistake I gotta make
Then I'm glory bound

So I packed it up and I went to the winds
And I lived out of a VW bus for a year or two
Ain't nothing but a pipe dream and my guitar
Livin off of apple fields and old cigars
Diggin this microphone checking it out every night all alone
The car battery is dead again so I got my head dead set against it

So say cheri cheRI won't you dare to
Say cheri cheri won't you dare to
Leave a message and your number please
Take the time to want to satisfy me
Take all those fantasies and send them care of me

I'm taking a chance on the wind
I'm packing all my bags
Taking a mistake I gotta make
Then I'm glory bound

    General CommentChoosing the unknown that might offer more than the known. Choosing something that might be a mistake rather than a sure thing -- because the "sure thing" isn't making you happy.
