Been To Canaan Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Green fields and rolling hills
Room enough to do what we will
Sweet dreams of yestertime
Are running though my mind
Of a place I left behind

Been so long, I can't remember when
I've been to Canaan
And I want to go back again
Been so long, I'm living till then
'Cause I've been to Canaan and I
I won't rest until, I go back again

Though I'm content with myself
Sometimes I long to be somewhere else
I try to do what I can
But with our day to day demands
We all need a promised land

And it's been so long, I can't remember when
I've been to Canaan
And I want to go back again
Been so long, I'm living till then
'Cause I've been to Canaan and I
I won't rest until, I go back again

Oh I want to be there
In the wintertime
With a fireplace burning
To warm me
And you to hold me when it's stormy

Been so long, I can't remember when
But I've been to Canaan
And I want to go back again
Been so long, I'm living till then
I've been to Canaan and I
I won't rest until, I go back again
I've been to Canaan and I
I won't rest until, I go back again
