    "I was running down the mountain
    South of Tennessee
    Headed to the town where everyone’s a friend to me
    We were waiting for the song that would set us free
    Set us free and carry us away

    There’s not better reminder of the things ahead of you
    Than the road to Carolina bringing into view
    But the smokies and the sun as it’s burning off the dew
    Burning off and turning on the day
    Turning on the day

    Went to Clayton down to Demorest
    Id never hear the end of it
    If I jumped up in the sluice and jumped on in and swam around a bit
    But the water’s just too cold
    And I am just too old
    Too old for that river anyway

    Took a left when I hit Baldwin
    And I heard my old friend calling me
    to get on into town
    Before the rain made it too hard tro see
    But it’s coming around the bend
    Cause it might be the end
    The end of me if I can’t hold my own
    If I can’t hold my own
    If I can’t hold my own

    Well he left us here the year before
    Maybe two or three or more
    We’d shaken at the voice that told us that god had closed the door
    There would be no end, oh
    Just a final day crescendo
    Of this place we all called home
    Of this place we all called home

    Well I need a trip to Athens like a Delta needs her diet pills
    But there’s something about that town
    That’s nestled in those Georgia hills
    That makes you want to stay
    But soon I’ll go away
    And it won’t notice that I’m gone

    There’s nothing quite the same about that drive back up 441
    Not ever since that moment when I found out his day was done
    But I must still move on
    And I can still here his song
    Telling me it’s time to go back home
    Time to go back home

    Well nothing ever’s known til we reach the finish line
    We were rollin' home
    Round and round the hands of time
    But I must still move
    And I can hear his song
    Telling me it’s time to go back home
    So I am coming home
    I am coming home…
