lyrics

Sold the farm for pennies on the dollar
Don’t look back, there’s nothing for you there
And the job that held it all together
Off to foreign lands, someone’s answer to a prayer

Eyes wide open, thoughts in forward mode
There’s time for sentiment sometime down the road
One time they said all roads lead to Rome
I don’t know, I’ve a hope my road leads me home

I used to be a lover and provider
Oh to hold her close, listen to her breathe
She’d tell me things that warm my heart like fire
Turning over earth to feed a hungry land

Eyes wide open, thoughts in forward mode
There’s time for sentiment sometime down the road
One time they said all roads lead to Rome
I don’t know, I’ve a hope my road leads me home

When you’re homesick for some place you’ve never been
Lovestruck by some face that comes and goes again
Tongue tied by the language of a new means to an end
Oh, I’ve got the will, yes I do, of the winter’s cold, hard winds
But I don’t know what to do now with these hands
They’re laid upon the backbone of these working lands
I don’t know what to do now with these hands
They’re laid upon the backbone of these working lands

Eyes wide open, thoughts in forward mode
There’s time for sentiment sometime down the road
One time they said all roads lead to Rome
I don’t know, I’ve a hope my road leads me home
