Im Coming Home

Robert Earl Keen

 Packed my suitcase and I racked my brain
 Bought a ticket on a late night train
 Took a taxi through the pourin' rain
 I'm comin' home to you

Flew from Boston out to San Jose
Sae our old friends in Monterey Bay
When they asked me if I'd like to stay
I said I'm comin' home to you


 I'm comin' home
 Made up my mind that's what I'm gonna do
 Can't love nobody on the telephone
 I'm comin' home to you

They threw a party there from dusk 'till dawn
Seems like everybody knows old sleepy John
He said next time I better bring you along
I'm comin' home to you

They had fresh caught salmon on the bareques
There were people jammin' all night to the blues
Life is good out in Santa Cruz but
I'm comin' home to you


I drove forever out to God knows where
Come ten-thirty there was no one there
They couldn't pay me but I didn't care
I'm comin' home to you

I'm feelin' better since I got your card
I read it over and over when the road gets hard
Ain't nothin' better than your own backyard
I'm comin' home to you


Packed my suitcase and I racked my brain
Bought a ticket on the late night train
Took a taxi in the pourin' rain......
