Coming & Going Home

I’ve been on the road for some time. Sure, I had spent many months back in the states while recovering after my broken leg in Bolivia. But that little accident didn’t set me back. Because I went back. Now in Buenos Aires. I know I’ve spent too long here. But the city just grabbed me. Sucked me in. And like a magnet it holds me here. But I need to get on. But Buenos Aires seems like home. I’ve said this many times before. Maybe it’s Argentina that seems like home. Then there’s home in the metaphorical way. Is it really where the heart is? Home.

Everybody’s got someplace they call home. Doc has been my home for more than a year.

Coming Home

In the fall leaves turn brown

Nature sings it’s song takes it’s course

Now I know I’ll be traveling on

Winter’s coming the air is getting cold

Birds are flying down the highway in the sky

This place is changing so am i

I’ve got to leave it all behind

Then someday I’ll be back to claim what’s mine

And don’t worry

Someday I’ll be coming home

Yes and don’t worry now

Someday I’ll be coming home

I don’t know where I want to go but there’s

One thing I know I’ve got to be on my own

So watch me as I go ramblin on down the road

Singing songs of tales untold

Mystery men and the days of old

I’m going where my dreams can be

Where life is not reality

Where visions clad in colors true

Can take me where I’m going to and don’t worry

Someday I’ll be coming home

Yes and don’t worry now

Someday I’ll be coming home

I don’t know what I’m looking for

I’m looking for an open door

To take me where I can live my life

The way I want to

I’ll do things my way

Right or wrong

Play and sing all day long

Have my land, treat it well

And be kind to my fellow man

You may say that this ain’t right

Thats’ how I’ll go about my life

I’ll be light as a feather floating here and there

I don’t know

Someday I’ll be coming home

Yes and don’t worry now

Someday I’ll be coming home

I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Don’t worry now

    G Love! Man, I love that song. I’ve been lurking on your site for some time now, and really enjoy your travels. I hear that song in my head after every long trip, as I hit Jefferson county see the street signs for my hometown.
    Keep up the great posts, Allan. I’m loving your story.

    Nick –
    Thanks for lurking! And finally posting a note to let me know you’re there! Yeah. You gotta love G. Love. Those words ring true. Travel is addictive and the unknown is around every corner until you take that turn and discover it.
    I’m enjoying the ride and doing my best to keep the posts flowing!
