Well this life that I live has took me everywhere
There ain't no place that I ain't never gone
But it's kind of like the saying that you heard so many times
Well there just ain't no place like home

Did you ever see a she-gator protect her young
Or a fish in a river swimming free?
Did you ever see the beauty of the hills of Carolina
Or the sweetness of the grass in Tennessee?

And Lord I can't make any changes
All I can do is write 'em in a song
'Cause what I can see is the concrete slowly creepin'
Lord take me and mine before that comes

Do you like to see a mountain stream a-flowin'?
Do you like to see a youngun with his dog?
Did you ever stop to think about, well, the air you're breathin'?
Well you better listen to my song

And Lord I can't make any changes
All I can do is write 'em in a song
'Cause what I can see is the concrete slowly creepin'
Lord take me and mine before that comes

I'm not tryin' to put down no big cities
But the things they write about us is just a bore
Well you can take a boy out of ol' Dixieland
Oh but you'll never take ol' Dixie from a boy

And Lord I can't make any changes
All I can do is write 'em in a song
'Cause what I can see is the concrete slowly creepin'
Lord take me and mine before that comes
'Cause I can see the concrete slowly creepin'
Lord take me and mine before that comes
