We were always looking for true north
With our heads in the clouds, just a little off course
I left the motor running, now if you’re feeling down and out
Come on baby drive, come on baby drive south
It’s been a long long time since I’ve been back home
I’ve been around the world and I know where I belong. . .
Well the demons they can’t trick me, I don’t believe those gospel songs
And even though I know the words, I still won’t sing along. . .
But I say “Oh, I’ll get there when I get there. . .
And Oh, I’ll get there when I come. . .
You may not like my appearance, may not like my song
May not like the way I talk, but you’ll like me when I’m gone
I’m a freeborn man my home is on my back
I know every inch of highway every foot of
Back road every mile of railroad track
