Dream of my own
Copyright 2012 Jim Ferrie Music

I watched my daddy bring the harvest home
For the last time last night
I looked away packin' up my books and the things I own
And I closed the door and dowsed the light

I fixed my gaze over the prarie wide
Just as the bus was pullin' in
My breakin' heart got onboard to take this city ride
And cast my mem'ries to the wind

I got a chance to be the best of me
I can't deny myself you see
And my heart is playin' tug o' war with my weary head
Coz you won't come along with me

And it's been hard to choose as I listened to my muse sayin'
Don't live in no-one else's dream
And I think of you back home as I count another milestone
To live a dream of my own, oh yeah

Girl, I've gone a long way from home (that's where the heart is)
To live a dream of my own

I believe there's so much more of me to give
If you could take me as I am
I can't go back to the way it used to be back home
Guess it ain't fittin' with my plan

And now the voices echo round my head
All biddin' me to come back home
But I decided once and for all when I left the farm
I gotta walk this road alone

So pretty baby don't you wait for me
Though it's not that I don't love you so
Look away and look for a man that I once was
To hold you tight and build your home

Girl, I'm such a long way from home (home is where the heart is)
Gotta live a dream of my own
Gotta live a dream of my own....
