Relocation Blues

Moved everything here to be with you, What more did you want me to do, Let my job go so I could be in your world, Then my settled life became unfurled, These eyes watch you turn my world to an end, These arms long to hold you again, But hurtin’s on me yeah, so what can I say, You’re a rich girl and you’ve gone too far cuz you know it don’t matter anyway. Oh I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain, I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end, I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend, But I always thought that i’d see you again. Should I stay or should I go... American woman get away from me, American woman mama let me be, Don’t come hanging around my door, Don’t want to see your face no more, Coloured lights can hypnotize Sparkle someone else’s eyes So country road take me home, to the place where I belong, Back to my homeland, all alone, singing my own song. Written September 28, 2011 Includes the following songs; These Eyes Rich Girl Fire and Rain Should I Stay or Should I Go American Woman Country road
