I'm driving to St. Louis, it's about nine hours away
But, time is just a measure, babe, yeah, the distance is okay
I'm going to see a couple friends and to watch some baseball games
Find a bar and talk awhile, listen to the band begin to play
Watch that Mississippi glide south from Memphis all the way to New Orleans
I crossed the line near Keokuk, into a light Missouri rain
Though the sky is gray, baby, everything looks green

Back in Minnesota, my lover waits for me
I lingered in her goodbye kiss, she's the one I long to see
If home is where the heart is, ain't that what somebody said?
Then home, for me, is any place she's lying in my bed
The days went fast, now i'm on the road again
I've got time to think, I've got time to make some plans
Sometimes, I've got to get away, if only to come home
If only just to hear her say again


Welcome home, welcome home, welcome home
Welcome home, welcome home, welcome home
Everywhere I go, no matter where I go
I will always come home to you...

With many miles behind me, I still got a few to go
A song from 1966 plays on my radio
The highway is a friend to me, that's how it's always been
It takes me where I want to go, then it brings me back again
The times will change, and grow this body old
But, my eyes see just as clear as yesterday
Though I start to tire as I drive into the night
All i love awaits and I know i'll get home safe
