Well, all right, you put your heart and your soul on the line
You pay the price; you can leave all your dues behind, yeah
You go spinning your wheels till just one song makes it right
Live your life on the road; now they call you a star overnight
Overnight, overnight, oh, no, no

[Chorus]
Gave it all; for it seemed like ages
Lived the life of a rolling stone
Seen the world from a thousand stages
There ain't no feelin' you've ever known
Like when a hometown boy comes home

This guy's a joker, and this is not the key to your town
And there's always somebody who thinks he makes a living
From putting you down
You're aware of the odds just forgetting the chance you must take
When you're bound to a vision, there is no decision to make
No, no, no

[Chorus]

When he comes home
The road is long and you're on your own
But through it all you know your roots run so deep
Out on the rock-'n'-roll highway
You make a promise to bring it back home
And that's one promise you know ya gotta keep

[Chorus]

But it's never gonna feel like
When a hometown boy comes home
He's a hometown hero
