Story Behind The Song

I wrote this song while I was traveling with a Christian band in the spring of 2003. Penny and I had just fallen in love before I left for this short tour, and as the guys and I made our way through New Mexico, I called her every night and found comfort

Early Sunday mornin' . . . I saw the sun comin' up
I watched it change a Kansas wheat field from gray to gold
Late Monday evenin' . . . I had some coffee with the boys
On a run-down Dallas stage . . . after the show
Sometimes I get so lonely . . . livin' life on the road
Tryin' to make a livin' . . . chasin' the moon
But when I think I'm goin' crazy . . . I lay back and close my eyes
And I'm there . . . right back home with you

Well, I can see the porch light burnin' . . . at the end of the lane
I can see the smoke from the chimney . . . curlin' up through the rain
I can hear the sound of music . . . driftin' through the front room screen
I can see you smilin' and a-wavin' . . . like an angel in my dream
It doesn't matter how far I roam
I think of you . . . when I want to go home
(2nd X to Bridge)
(3rd X to Tag)

Spendin' time together . . . gentle whispers in the night
Holdin' you close by the light of a candle flame
Girl, I just can't stand it . . . you know I need to be with you
Instead of here . . . on this bus, callin' out your name.
(To Chorus)

Goin' home . . . . home . . . . . . .
(Modulate and repeat Chorus)

It doesn't matter how far I roam
I think of you . . . and I'm al . . . ready home.
