I've got a mountain to climb before I get over this hill
I've got the world to unwind before I ever sit still
I've got a hard row to hoe before my seed is sown
I've got a long way to get before I get back home

I've got so much to put down before that's all she wrote
I've got so much to give before my heart ain't so broke
I've got to find myself before I can ever be alone
I've got a long way to get before I get back home

and there's an ocean of reason that I can't explain
and there's the weight of the world like a ball and chain
and there's a big black hole inside me that I've filled up with stones
I got a long way to get before I get back home

there's a man I've never met who looks a lot like me
there's a little place called heaven that
I'll probably never see
there's a thing called peace of mind that I have never known
I've got a long way to get before I get back home

    General CommentBeautiful song. There's still a lot he has to do with his life. It's also about accepting that he doesn't know everything and that's okay with him.
