The Wanderer Lyrics

Found On:

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"The Wanderer" (Johnny Cash Tribute version)

"It did get messy, but we wouldn't have [Zooropa] if we hadn't put in the extra effort. The highlight was Johnny Cash on 'The Wanderer.' That was a piece of U2 opportunism. We were working on this tune and Bono says, 'Hey, Johnny Cash is in town playing a show. I think we should get him to sing it.' We all thought, 'You're off your rocker,' but we met him after the show and he was mad for it.' - The Edge, Q 2002

I went out walking through streets paved with gold
Lifted some stones
Saw the skin and bones of a city without a soul
I went out walking under an atomic sky
Where the ground won't turn and the rain
It burns like the tears when I first said goodbye

Yeah, I went with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
I went wandering
Wa-wa-wa-wa-wandering

I went drifting through the capitals of tin
Where men can't walk or freely talk
And sons turn their fathers in
I stepped outside a church house
Where the citizens, they like to sit
They say they want the kingdom
But they don't want God in it
I went out riding down that old eight lane
I passed by a thousand signs
Looking for my own name

Yeah, I went with nothing
But the thought you'd be there too
Went looking for you
Wa-wa-wa-wa-wandering

I went out there in search of experience
To taste and to touch and to feel
As much as a man can before he repents

I went out searching, looking for one good man
A spirit who would not bend or break
Who would sit at his father's right hand
I went out walking with a bible in the sun
The word of God lay heavy on my heart
I was hoping I could be the one
Now Jesus, don't you wait up
Jesus I'll be home soon
Yeah, I went out to bury my love
I promise I'll be back by noon

Yeah, I left with nothing
But the thought you'd be there too
Went looking for you
Wa-wa-wa-wa-wandering
Yeah, I went with nothing
Nothing but the thought of you
I went wandering
Wa-wa-wa-wa-wandering
