about

The music and lyrics (written by Gammage collaborator David Schell) evoke an image of a vanishing America — one of shiftless men who criss cross the country by rail and connect with other people only to abandon them when they feel the emotional cost is too high.

The single “Just Another Traveling Man” will appear on Phil’s new album later in 2021.

lyrics

Meet by the old Pepsi sign
I’ve been standing here since half past 9
smoking castoffs, and drinking gin
sportin’ my Nicholson grin.

Most men don’t ever stick around
You thought you’d gone and pinned me down
Don’t bother, you can’t ever understand
That I’m just another traveling man

It was getting on to noon
I thought that you’d be showing up soon
My throat was getting mighty dry
Me and this Nevada sky

I realized that you weren’t coming
One thing I’ve learned from this life of bumming
There was a freight headed up the rail
I decided to go and grab it’s tail

Most men don’t ever stick around
You thought you’d gone and pinned me down
As the future holds another day
I might again pass this way

Most men don’t ever stick around
You thought you’d gone and pinned me down
Don’t bother, you can’t ever understand
That I’m just another traveling man
