    Lyrics »

I just couldn't wait to leave my happy childhood
Thinkin' home was just another happy place
'Cause I had to see the world and all its wonders
And try to leave my mark upon its face
So I left it with a touch of trepidation
And a need to prove my talent for the chase
Just to show the kind of stuff that I was made of
Or see if I would falter in the race

On my way back home
To my sweet eternal mountains
To the rivers and the rocks that never move
On my way back home
I'll be singin' down the highway
'Cause every place I've ever been
Was on my way back home

Lookin' back some folks might say I was successful
That I shook the hands of kings and presidents
And I surely think they'll say I did my duty
And struck a blow for love and common sense
And lookin' back let's not forget my sweetheart
'Cause everywhere I've been she's been along
She's the one who stays with me forever
And everywhere I look she's in my song

On my way back home
With my sweetheart from the mountains
To the rivers and the rocks that never move
On my way back home
I'll go singin' down the highway
'Cause every place I've ever been
Was on my way back home
