Lyrics

Every night I have the strangest dream
All these ghosts are talking to me
I lay down in my bed and I can hardly sleep
These homeland blues have got a hold of me

I went over to my cousin’s house
To see if we couldn’t figure it out
He said it’s plain to see, you’ve got them homeland blues
What hope have I got if what you’re sayin’ is true

And I got them homeland blues
Tried to tell you I got them homeland blues
Got them homeland blues
Honey pull over I got them homeland blues
Sooner I get my ticket
Sooner I’ll come runnin back to you

I asked my mother do you know what I mean
She could hardly look up at me
Eyes to her paper and I knew she had them too
Eyes to her coffee and I knew she had them too

Have you ever missed something that you never even had
You’re down so low and you feel so bad
That’s when you know you got them homeland blues
That’s when you know that you got them homeland blues

And I got them homeland blues
Tried to tell you I got them homeland blues
Got them homeland blues
Honey pull over I got them homeland blues
Sooner I get my ticket
Sooner I’ll come runnin back to you

Well I went outside and I couldn’t get a cab
All distracted from the night we had
Sat down on the curb, nursing my homeland blues
Down on the curb and I’m nursing my homeland blues

My American soul gets lonely sometimes
I take a walk and it clears my mind
And I hold you tight to shake my homeland blues
I hold on tight just to shake my homeland blues

And I got them homeland blues
Tried to tell you I got them homeland blues
Got them homeland blues
Honey pull over I got them homeland blues
If home is where I left it, the sooner I’ll come running back to you
