Across the ocean
And I'm soaring
To the place I was born
And probably raised.
And I'm flying
Across the mountains and valleys,
Back home to the one that I love so happily.
Can ya blame me for feeling homesick
'Cause I've been away such a very long long time
I served a while in the county jail
Five years for being hungry tired and poor
On and on
Yes I will follow
With your buttons and bows.
