Starry night, guide my dream

City life ainít what it seems to be

City lights, they make my head spin

Iíd like to leave off where I came in, hey yeah, eh

 

Rainbow Mountain Iím comin' home

Iíve spent too much time on the road - Iím comin' home

Iím tired of walkin' alone, yeah

Hmmm, I'm comin' home

Do us both a favor and try not to look so good

Do us both a favor and try not to look so good, yeah, yeah

Nothin' on my mountain wears makeup

There ainít no reason you should

So do us both a favor and try not to look so good

Do us both a favor and try not to look so good

 

Mama wrap your arms around me

Let me see the eagles in your hair

Let your gravity ground me

It gets cold out there

 

I went to sow my seed in the city

But I canít get nothin' to grow, so

Iím comin' home - Iím comin' home to hoe my row

Oh, Iím comin' home, yeah

Oh, I'm comin' home

 

Starry night, guide my dreams

City life ainít what it seems to be

City lights they make my head spin

Iíd like to leave off where I came in, hey, yeah, eh

 

Rainbow Mountain Iím comin' home

Iíve spent too much time on the road - Iím comin' home

Iím tired of walkin' alone

 

Rainbow Mountain where all my friends live

The times weíve shared and the love that we give

Time to raise my voice

Iíve got to make my choice

Oh, Iím comin' home, yeah

Hey, Iím comin' home
