Great song ... but then, I'm a Kristoffersen fan (both his writing and singing ... not to mention his acting).

I've tried both styles of life i.e. wandering homeless, and the suburbanite worker. Seems to me there is good and bad in both life styles, and the feeling of freedom is largely subjective - you either feel good, or you don't. I can understand what feelings may have prompted the song. If you read other lyrics Kris has written, you can find much deep thought and feeling.

Should there be a group of threads labelled "Deep and meaningful discussions"? Now, now - put down the hoe! I'm just trying to lift the mood a little ... no screams of anguish please.
