Tumbling Tumbleweeds
Sons Of The Pioneers Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

See them tumbling down
Pledging their love to the ground!
Lonely, but free, I'll be found
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

Cares of the past are behind
Nowhere to go, but I'll find
Just where the trail will wind
Drifting along with the tumblin' tumbleweeds

I know when night has gone
That a new world's born at dawn!
I'll keep rolling along
Deep in my heart is a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

I know when night has gone
That a new world's born at dawn!
I'll keep rolling along
Deep in my heart is a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds

Overall Meaning

The first verse of Sons of the Pioneers' Tumbling Tumbleweeds speaks of the beauty of the natural world, as the singer observes the tumbleweeds rolling across the ground, pledging their love to the earth. The loneliness of the singer is highlighted, but it is also clear that he or she is free to roam, and will do so along with the tumbling tumbleweeds, drifting through life without a care in the world.


The second verse suggests that the singer has left the cares of the past behind, and while there is nowhere in particular to go, he or she will follow the winding trail wherever it may lead. The tumbling tumbleweeds serve as a reminder of the beauty and unpredictability of the natural world, and the singer finds peace in this.


The final verse is perhaps the most uplifting, as the singer looks forward to a new dawn and the promise of a fresh start. The rolling along that the singer has been doing takes on a more joyful tone, as the heart is filled with song and the sense of belonging on the open range is strong. The tumbling tumbleweeds continue to serve as a symbol of freedom, unpredictability, and the beauty of nature.


Line by Line Meaning

See them tumbling down
Watching the tumbleweeds roll and fall


Pledging their love to the ground!
The way the tumbleweeds tumble and fall show their devotion to the earth


Lonely, but free, I'll be found
Even though I may be alone, I am free and at peace


Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds
Flowing and moving like the tumbleweeds


Cares of the past are behind
Leaving behind worries and troubles from the past


Nowhere to go, but I'll find
Even though I may not know where I am headed, I will find my way


Just where the trail will wind
Following the path as it twists and turns


Drifting along with the tumblin' tumbleweeds
Continuing to move forward like the tumbleweeds


I know when night has gone
With the passing of each night


That a new world's born at dawn!
A new world is created with each new day


I'll keep rolling along
I will keep moving forward


Deep in my heart is a song
I have a melody in my heart


Here on the range I belong
I belong here on the open range


Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds
Continuing to move forward like the tumbleweeds

Deep in my heart is a song
Here on the range I belong
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds
