Lyrics

HOME TO MENDOCINO
Words and Music by Johnny Rodgers


I've got my ear against the track and I can hear that train a-hummin' ...
The smoke is risin' from the stack. I'm gonna climb aboard and ride.
And when I meet that misty mornin' mountain air,
The sun will rise and I will feel it shine.
I spent the weekend earnin' money for my fare.
I'm gonna ride it down the line .. .'Cause I'm

Comin' Home ... Home to Mendocino.

Got my guitar strapped to my back and I can feel my fingers strummin',
The colors fade from blue to black across a sky so dark and wide.
But when I'm buried in your golden-blossom hair,
The sun will rise and I will feel it shine.
I may not have much, but I've got love enough to share
And I'm comin' back to make you mine. .'Cause I'm

Comin' Home ... Home to Mendocino.

This old guitar and I are following a star.
Comin' Home ... Home to Mendocino
'Cause Mendocino's where you are.

I've wandered far for far too long
I thought I'd find a love more true,
But now I know that I was wrong.
And now I know what I should do ..
I'm comin' home to you.

Comin' Home ... Home to Mendocino.
This old guitar and I are following a star.
Comin' Home ... Home to Mendocino
'Cause Mendocino's where you are.

Comin' Home ... Home to Mendocino.
This old guitar and I are following a star.
Comin' Home ... Home to Mendocino
'Cause Mendocino's where you are.
