Been To Canaan Lyrics

by Carole King

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
