about

This blog is named after 2 songs.

The first title comes from Patty Griffin’s song about our walk around this planet. I’ve always thought that everybody could have rights to this song. It’s not my mantra, mission statement, or bumper sticker, but it’s good enough to inspire a blog. Her voice holds the other half, so listen to her sing.

10 Million Miles

I must have walked ten million miles
Must have walked ten million miles
Wore some shoes that weren’t my style
Ten million miles

I’ve been kind of told some lies
Like anyone who’s lived or died
Like anyone who’s ever tried
To walk ten million miles

I memorize and I forget
I do some things that I regret
Wish for things I never get
Walk in the rain and get wet

I must have walked ten million miles
Must have walked ten million miles
So think before you criticize
Ten million miles

I traveled ’round from place to place
Wore some rags around my waist
And other times, a dress of lace
And always search for your sweet face

You oughta come some time for tea
Maybe we could see the sea
Talk a lot, or let things be
Just enjoy the mystery

I must have walked ten million miles
Must have walked ten million miles
Wore some shoes that weren’t my style
Fell into the rank and file
So just say I was here a while
A fool in search of your sweet smile
Ten million miles

The second – but more important – title comes from my autobiography, which was best penned in Fanny Crosby’s hymn, “All The Way My Savior Leads Me”.

Here’s Chris Tomlin’s version:

All the way my Savior leads me
Who have I to ask beside
How could I doubt His tender mercy
Who through life has been my guide

All the way my Savior leads me
Cheers each winding path I tread
Gives me grace for every trial
Feeds me with the living Bread

You lead me and keep me from falling
You carry me close to Your heart
And surely Your goodness and
mercy will follow me

All the way my Savior leads me
O, the fullness of His love
O, the sureness of His promise
In the triumph of His blood
And when my spirit clothed immortal
Wings it’s flight to realms of day
This my song through endless ages
Jesus led me all the way
Jesus led me all the way

All the way my Savior leads me
All the way my Savior leads me
