This morning I work up with the feelin' that I'd been away too long
All this blacktop runnin' underneath my wheels makes me feel too gone
Well I could use a lot of sleep and a little bit of time on my own
And then the sight of you just waiting for me with open arms

Chorus:

Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome, Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome

Now it's the middle of November and the lilies bloom by the Gage springs
Yeah, I can see us flyin' down the Craig store road like we've got wings
Turn the radio off, baby, all I want to do is hear you sing
Yeah, I can close my eyes and perfectly imagine everything

Chorus:

Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome, Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome
Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome, Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome

Bridge (1):

All the time that I been takin'
All the things I've never found
Suddenly were waiting for me
The minute that I slowed it down

Instrumental break

Bridge(2):

All the time that I been takin'
All the things I've never found
Suddenly were waiting for me
The minute that I turned around

Tonight I'm gonna wish you all the things that love can bring
And then I'll climb right up and watch the sun go down on top of Reilly's hill
I feel the beautiful breeze just a-slippin' in under the windowsill
And smell the perfume of the night from those lilies of those fields

Chorus:

Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome, Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome
Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome, Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome
Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome, Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome
Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome, Goin' h-o-o-o-o-ome (mind the gap)
