lyrics

I've faced a hundred heartaches and I've faced a million joys
I found purpose in living ten miles west of Illinois
I've shared a house with strangers, got a tent out on the range
Got a bunk bed in a hostel, got a hunch I need a change

Missouri, I'm coming home Missouri, been gone too long

I've seen too many airports, been on too many planes
Road in the back of pickup trucks all night in pouring rains
I've slept in the barren desert, I've slept on the forest floor
Slept through some conversations. I can't do this anymore

Missouri, I'm coming home Missouri, been gone too long

I've been gripped and stripped by terror, I've laughed until I've cried
I've danced until the sunrise singing out all that's inside
Got to get back to the heartland, where my heart can just unwind
Back to that so familiar, the constant through all time

Missouri, I'm coming home Missouri, been gone too long

I've had my fill of insects, small mammals, birds and snakes
I've made some great discoveries, I've made some grave mistakes
I can't say I'll stay forever, I can't say I'll never leave
But my heart just feels a longing for old friends and family in

Missouri, I'm coming home Missouri, been gone too long
