Oh I'm sitting by the railway station
Got a ticket for my destination
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band
Homeward bound, I wish I was homeward bound

Home where my thought's a straying
And home where my music's playing
And home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me

Each day becomes an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines
And each town looks the same to me, the movies and the factories
And every person's face I see reminds me that I long to be
Homeward bound I wish I was homeward bound

Tonight I'll sing my songs again
Play the game and I'll pretend oh yeah
But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me and take me
Homeward bound I wish I was homeward bound
