God gives me traveling shoes, God gave me the wanderer’s eye God gave me a few gold coins to help me to the other side Looked around and said, “Be careful how small things grow” God gave me traveling shoes and I knew that it was time to go
Sent in the ship at night to take me to the hidden port Found me the key at last to open up the prison door Brought down the blackbird's wings, gifted me with beggar's eyes Sent in the jackals to tell me I should say bye, bye, bye
I'm home, home Home, home, home And I'm home, home Home, home, home
But I'm miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away Where can I hide?
God gave me one last chance, gave me one last reprieve Jah gave me hunger, gave me the air to breathe Gave me one suitcase, gave me one last goodbye Gave me traveling shoes, without them I would surely die, die, die
Home, home, Home, home, home Home, home Home, home, home
Miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away Miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away Where do I go? Or where can I hi hi hi hide hi hi hi hide
I'm home home, Home home home, And I'm home home, Home home, home
