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'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.

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

Vampire Biggie

Agreed. Check out his song with soko too

Cornershop

The band were driving back to the airport, and were stopped and fined by police which we were told by our very capable driver was standard form for vans and trucks.  It seems an easy going video, but if the back seat volume was up, it is like an episode of Poirot.  That is the back story Roy. 
I'm afraid we don't jam SuB, but thats very good of you.

@booseyhey It's the real band account.

@thanxx because you didn't have the album? Never ever heard it played anywhere but it lingers always in my memory, largely for the syrupy lovely female vocals. Great album.

booseyhey

Is this the real Cornershop or just someone with an account called Cornershop? If it is the real Cornershop then... You have given me so much musical pleasure over the years. Thank you!

My father adored this song and it was one of the rare things he wanted recorded for his car tapes.
