about

I wrote this riding my bicycle around Toronto in the days before leaving for my first tour in 2006. My boyfriend had just cheated on me and dumped me, and a friend of mine called me up, urged me to quit my job and come on the road. So I did.

lyrics

One pair of jeans
two pairs of shoes
Three little dresses
One case of the blues
I'm packin' on up
And gettin' right out of here

One torrid mind
Two hearts that weave
Three reasons why
I gotta leave
I'm packin' on up
And gettin' right out of here

Oh I hear the mountains
And the tall green trees
Calling me back
through a Westward breeze
No reason to pull me
Or drag me by the hair
'Cause in my mind
I'm already there

One old guitar
Two microphones
13,000 dollars
I owe in loans
I'm packin' on up
And gettin' right out of here

One thousand bucks
To fix the van
Three other souls
With no beter plans
I'm packin' on up
And gettin' right out of here

Looking for something
So fast, so free
Not worried 'bout thinking
For anyone but me
No chance to get lonely
Or feel sad in anyway
'Cause everything changes
When you're moving everyday

One
Too many times
Three people suffer
From one lover's crime
I'm packin' on up
ANd getting right out of here

One broken spirit
Too much to give
Three weeks to remember
What it means to live
I'm packin' on up
And gettin' right out of here

Sarah Burton Toronto, Ontario

Burton’s career started in 2006 with a broken heart, a broken down van, and a haphazard tour across Canada in a van named Lucky. This set the tone for an artist life driven by adventure, spontaneity, and a desire to connect with people from all walks of life. ... more
