God gives me traveling shoes,
God gave me the wanderer’s eye
God gave me a few gold coins to help me to the other side
Looked around and said, “Be careful how small things grow”
God gave me traveling shoes and I knew that it was time to go

Sent in the ship at night to take me to the hidden port
Found me the key at last to open up the prison door
Brought down the blackbird's wings, gifted me with beggar's eyes
Sent in the jackals to tell me I should say bye, bye, bye

I'm home, home
Home, home, home
And I'm home, home
Home, home, home

But I'm miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away
Where can I hide?

God gave me one last chance, gave me one last reprieve
Jah gave me hunger, gave me the air to breathe
Gave me one suitcase, gave me one last goodbye
Gave me traveling shoes, without them I would surely die, die, die

Home, home,
Home, home, home
Home, home
Home, home, home

Miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away
Miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away
Where do I go?
Or where can I hi hi hi hide hi hi hi hide

I'm home home,
Home home home,
And I'm home home,
Home home, home

And I'm miles away
Miles away
But I'm miles away
