music and lyrics by McKain Lakey

lyrics

The hippies on bikes tell me I should stop driving,
but driving down this road's the only way that I stay sane.
If I drive long enough, I might run into heaven.
Aren't heaven and home simply one and the same?
Find me one or the other and I'll never complain.

I could drive through these fields 'til the last day I'm living,
and never grow tired of this wheel in my hand.
It's places like this that keep me believing
in God and the mountains, the sea, and the land,
and the folks who keep going just the best that they can.

And I'm learning how to be gentle
and I'm learning how to be kind.
Cuz working and fighting are all that comes natural
and I don't want nobody to leave me behind.
No, I don't want nobody to leave me behind.

Big people use big words, but they're only telling lies.
They don't make me feel better 'bout this fear down inside.
And I'm doing all I can to keep some damn hope alive,
but I know I'll lose my life if they make me look through their eyes.
Yes, I know I'll lose my life if you make me look through your eyes.

I think heaven and home grow more and more distant
each year that some puppet has got too much to say.
I'm mourning the end of this place I believed in
and hoping to hell that I'll see it someday.
Yes, I'm hoping to hell that I might see it someday.

And I'm learning how to be gentle.
And I'm learning how to be kind.
Cuz working and fighting are all that comes natural,
and I don't want nobody to leave me behind.
No, I don't want nobody to leave me behind.
