Lyrics
VERSE 1
Hang-in 'round an airline jet-way - one more time
Lookn' at my life - for a reason and a rhyme
So many twists - so many turns
But there's a place I always return
A back porch swing - a faithful dog
A warm fire - with a crackling log
When so many little things - seem like a big deal
These are the ones that keep my life real
CHORUS
BUT - the road ahead is hard to see - Just a hint - of where I'll be
No use trying - sooo hard - When my heart is home....in my back yard!
VERSE 2
A grand old stage - a limousine
What do they all - really mean?
'Cause in my dreams I always come home
No matter how far this ol' boy roams
A sunny day with a bamboo pole
Whistling tunes down at the fishing hole
When so many little things - seem like a big deal
These are the ones that keep my life real
VERSE - Whistling solo
CHORUS
VERSE 3
My plane is leaving - gate 44
Grab my guitar and climb aboard
Might fall asleep by the time it's dawn
Dreaming of when life was a simple song
CHORUS
FINAL TAG
I'll always come home to my back yard!
