lyrics

Well, I’ve traveled that highway
Where every wrong turn and byway
Represented a sorrow
That I thought I had to grieve
But now my heart’s firmly planted
In this ground where I’m standing
And to tell the truth
I don’t care if I ever leave

Well I’m bound, I’ll admit it
My life’s claimed and committed
And I sometimes find it difficult
To find a small reprieve
But these chains they don’t bind me
They just help to redefine me
And to tell the truth
I don’t care if I ever leave

You can take this airline ticket
To a far and distant land
But there’s plenty of adventure
In this place right where I stand
Because the thrills that I’m after
Are your songs and your laughter
And to tell the truth
I don’t care if I ever leave

There’s no map that can tell you
And no brochure that can sell you
On the subtle geography
The heart alone perceives
But to reap you must sow it
When you see it you’ll know it
And to tell the truth
I don’t care if I ever leave

Instead of up and outward bounding
I’m content with my surroundings
For it’s here I find the friends and things
That mean so much to me
So it ain’t so surprising
That it’s here that my heart lies
And to tell the truth
I don’t care if I ever leave
