Call Me The Breeze Lyrics: They call me the breeze I keep rollin' down the road They call me the breeze I keep rollin' down the road I ain't got me nobody I ain't carrying me no load
Ain't no change in the weather Ain't no change in me Ain't no change in the weather Ain't no change in me I ain't hiding from nobody Ain't nobody hiding from me
I got that green light babe I got to be movin' on I got that green light babe I got to be movin' on I might go out to California Might go down to Georgia I don't know
