Lyrics

I see my old man out walking in his fields all alone
His wife and his friends have all died and gone
I wonder what he's thinking, does he ever think of me
His only son who should have carried on the name of the family

What kind of son am I? Does he think I turned out all right?
Moved into the city, stayed out every night.
Played some music, sang some songs, sat up on this stage all alone
The farmer's son who's now full grown, the prodigal son who never came home

Well the place I need to go back to is the place I left behind
All my life I've been running, didn't know what I would find
Moved into the city, headed on downtown
Sometimes you can't find yourself with the bright lights shining down . . .

It's Saturday night, I'm all alone
I think I'll go down to Voo Doo Daddy's, and see what's going on
I got some money, I just got paid today
I'd like to have a few drinks before I fade away

But the place I need to go back to is the place I left behind
All my life I've been running, didn't know what I would find
Moved into the city, headed on downtown
Dm - Sometimes you can't find yourself with the bright lights shining down . . .

I see myself out walking on the city streets all alone
My friends and my family are far away back home
But one thing I've learned, is that you can never go back to the farm
You never get a second deal once the dice has been thrown

But the place I need to go back to is the place I left behind
All my life I've been running, didn't know what I would find
Moved into the city, headed on downtown
Dm - Sometimes you can't find yourself with the bright lights shining down . .

Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die . . .
Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die . . .
Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die . . .
