Hey, hey I知 a long way from home

Yeah I知 a long way from home

I値l be no closer tomorrow than I am today

Livin' with the pain and the sorrow

I guess that that痴 the price I pay

I feel all alone every time I pass a payphone

I知 beginning to understand oblivion in a can

 

Hey I知 a long way from home

But hey I知 on my way home

I知 an old road soldier Growing bolder as I知 older

I don稚 need no gun

'Cuz the war against the highway can稚 be lost or won

 

I知 a Child of the Sixties

I believe in elves and pixies

The world today is a bigger game

But the rules remain the same

I知 in a sea of clarity

It seems kinda strange to me

That if I can see beyond the stars

I gotta live in a world full of motor cars

 

I知 a Child of the Sixties

I believe in elves and pixies

I never had a place to call my bed

'Cept where any crazy hippy can lay his head

 

People been tellin' me what to do - Gonna make 'em take their statements back

Their worlds are tinted blue by the windows on their Cadillacs

The golden green of the tree in the spring - In the evening sunshine

I致e been tryin' to live this dream - But this dream is not mine

 

Home is where the heart is

I guess the hardest part is

My heart is like an eagle that soars on the wind

I don稚 know where I値l be when I land again

 

But hey I知 a long way from home

But hey I知 on my way home

I'm an old road soldier

Growing bolder as I知 older

I don稚 need no gun

'Cuz the war against the highway can稚 be lost or won

 

And I致e traveled I致e wandered

Abroad and asunder

My thoughts are like lightning

My footsteps are thunder

 

The way that things are times the way that I feel

I don稚 want a blindfold I just want my last meal

 

Hey I知 a long way from home

But hey I'm on my way home

I知 an old road soldier

Growing bolder as I知 older
