Bet you never thought you'd see me 'round these parts again
'Cause five minutes after graduation I blew out of here like the wind
Was the first one in four generations to think that there had to be something more
And whatever I was missing, it was damn sure worth looking for
So I hit the road, long and lonesome road

I got lost in Arizona trying to find my place in the sun
Met a girl in Oklahoma - turns out she was not the one
Made my way to the Carolinas, wandered up and down the coast
Till it dawned on me, what I'd left right here
And what I'd been missing in my missing years...

It's the smell of the morning coffee at the Liberty Cafe
Smile my way from old Sonny, like I hadn't missed a day
Well, it sure ain't much to look at, just a dusty drive-through town
But the roots that run beneath it are what make it scared ground
I've seen enough to know what makes a place a home

'Cause I got lost in Arizona trying to find my place in the sun
Met a girl in Oklahoma - turns out she was not the one
Made my way to the Carolinas, wandered up and down the coast
Till it dawned on me, what I'd left right here
And what I'd been missing in my missing years...

Made my way from the Carolinas to this one lane gravel road
'Cause it dawned on me, what I left right here
'Cause what I been missing in my missing years
