"Adelaide" as written by and J Cale....
I want to go home, I want to go home
I want to go back to Adelaide
It' s time for a change, don't want to be late
It's probably night in Adelaide

In a day or two, I'll be there asking for you
To come back to Adelaide with me
The weather there is so good.

So pass me the phone, I'll go it alone
I'll whistle my way to Adelaide
There's no time to cry, I'll be there tonight
The trains and the boats and planes are on time.

But before I go, I'm knock-knocking on your front door
Be sure to say good-bye to your friends
And to all my friends back home.

But before I go, I'm knock-knocking on your front door
Be sure to say good-bye to your friends
And to all my friends back home.

Oh, Adelaide, Adelaide, I want you tonight
Adelaide, Adelaide, I want you tonight
