Well you country fools in your one horse town you can laugh at me
To see me now is like watching a fish on dry land
Mister, that's my home.

And when I don't do nothin' but walk on by you say baby get a load of him
All I need is the sea and the sky and I know where I stand
You'll never understand
Up here I'm a whisky bum but down there I'm a king
When they sing
Such a sight to see
Singing "Nearer My God To Thee"
Now I know that yankee whisky has taken away my mind
and I know this tree I'm under is shaped entirely wrong
I can feel that it's coming on strong
The first cold wind of winter is flapping in my clothes
Welcome home, welcome home
