He don’t want to leave his home,
But he’s heading out again.
Make some money, pay the bills,
He’ll be back, but not sure when.

Yeah the streets are paved with gold,
But your family’s left behind.
You long to hear the ocean roar,
And ease your worried mind.

His back’s against the wall,
This life’s no life at all.
But he won’t stop living,
He just keeps on singing.
No he won’t stop giving,
He just keeps on singing.
Some say just pack it all in,
And move point A to B.
But point A is all he knows,
And all he’ll ever need.


This story’s been told before;
It’s happening more and more.
But he just can’t back down,
No one ever taught him how.

He sings a song about uprooted people,
And those words just seem to explain.
How a home is more than windows and doors,
And point B, just ain’t the same.
