Good to Be on the Road Back Home
Cornershop Lyrics


And by the time that she gets home
She'll realize that I am gone
I'll be sitting in a back bar drinkin'
Drinking to my friends
And drinking to my foes
For both keep a young heart moving

It's good to be on the trail
From where my heart set sail
Puttin' anchor down
For friends and good beer
So I'll have another one
Then I'll be moving on

It's good to be on the road back home again, again
It's good to be on the road back home again

And by the time that he arrives
He will read, I have lied
He'll go drinking to his friends and to his foes
But drinking in the devil
That tears one apart, leaving
Memories of what should have been and wasn't

Son, petit business
In Tokyo town
Italy for the apples
To where my heart is now
Now it's giddy up or whoa
And I'm afraid it?s good to be back on the road home

It's good to be on the road back home again, again
It's good to be on the road back home again

I swear I meant to leave Chattanooga, but
But I had another one
And I realized what I'd gone
I need to be on the first bus back
Into her arms
It's good to be on the road back home

Too many nights
In dirty London town
Italy for the apples
To where my heart is now
For I've lost myself, searchin'
For what I ain't

It's good to be on the road back home again, again
It's good to be on the road back home again

Leave Chattanooga
Walk in to New York City
Aeroplane down to Nippon ground
Meets some friends in Tokyo town
Across to West Malva
Showboat to West Malay
Leave my foes to their woes
Sometimes that's how it goes

It's good to be on the road back home again, again
It's good to be on the road back home again

I love this song. What an album. Still play it all the time.

Eden Brough

Just one of the best songs ever. ‘Make way for a lady….’ And pan pipes.

obxwave

This is a GREAT band...vastly under appreciated, in my view.

Vampire Biggie

Agreed. Check out his song with soko too

I've been a fan of Cornershop since 1997. This song hits home because I lost my stepdad and my dad both this year. This song reminds me of both of them both.

Neil Durrant

Remember playing this with a new bird.. "Drinking is the devil" - yes that's right. Such a simple song, but communicating so much.

Kevin Kelly

When I Was Born For The Seventh Time is one of my all-time favorite albums.

M. Thyne

Hell yes.

Paul POP!

This was my #1 album in 1997.
