I have a friend who is, or will be, playing Dickey's "Long Time Gone". He asked me about the lyrics on the second verse. What are the lyrics between "Travelin' light" to "She's got the prettiest big brown eyes". I listened to the song many times today and cannot make out the lyrics in that part of the song. Any help would be appreciated and it will elevate my street cred with my musician friends
Thank you!

Long Time Gone

Out on the lonesome highway
Suitcase and an old guitar
Just outside Oklahoma City
In a place called Johnny's Roadside Bar
Having fun
Son of a gun
I ain't fit to be tied
I'm on my way back to Georgia
Won't you give me a ride?

Sometimes it ain't easy
When you don't have much to spare
Traveling light
Lord, counting on my fifth
But the little bit here and there
She's got the prettiest big brown eyes
When she's satisfied
But I'm on way back to Georgia, boys
Won't you give me the ride?

I'm a long time gone
On my way back home, Lord
Long time gone, gone

I'm a long time gone
On my way back home, Lord
Long time gone, gone (2x)

No, guys, it's this:
"Traveling light, lord, counting all my blessings..."
