Lyrics

Why should I think that heaven is my homeland
I’m a gypsy and I only want to roar
Why should I hope that God holds my throne when
I’m a rambler I’m here and I’m gone

Daughter oh daugther when you left home
You left me crying on that porch alone
Mother oh mother, but sorry I can’t stay
I don’t have a place in my own family

Why should I think that heaven is my homeland
I’m a drifter and I only want to roar
Why should I hope that God holds my throne when
I’m a gypsy I’m here and I’m gone

What’s your hurry my child sould be safe
You got your whole life to spend running away
Come on child and do as you told
Be careful be conscious be caution of yourself

Why should I think that heaven is my homeland
I’m a gypsy and I only want to roar
Why should I hope that God holds my throne when
I’m a rambler I’m here and I’m gone
