"Home is Where the Heart Is" as written by Hillary Dawn Scott, Victoria Lynn Shaw, Dave Haywood and Charles B. Kelley....
I felt I was spinning my wheels
Before too long the road was calling
I packed everything I owned
So sure that I was leaving this small town life behind for good
And not a single tear was falling
It took leaving for me to understand
Sometimes your dreams just aren't what life has planned

Mama said home is where the heart is
When I left that town
I made it all the way to West Virginia
And that's where my heart found
Exactly where I'm supposed to be
It didn't take much time
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line

I worked third shift at an all night diner
Only stayed to save a little money for
Enough gas to make it to the east coast
That's when I saw the brightest pair of
Deep blue eyes walking straight into my life
And every night we talked till it became so clear
And I could feel those dreams inside shifting gears
'Cause love brought me here

Mama said home is where the heart is
When I left that town
I made it all the way to West Virginia
And that's where my heart found
Exactly where I'm supposed to be
It didn't take much time
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line

And I'm standing in my veil about to say I do
As Mama smiles with tear drops in her eyes
And then I realize there's something Mama always knew
Love is what I really left to find

She said home is where the heart is
When I left that town
I made it all the way to West Virginia
And that's where my heart found
Exactly where I'm supposed to be
It didn't take much time
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line

Mama said home is where the heart is
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line

Mama said home is where the heart is
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line

    General CommentThis song is SO beautiful. I think its pretty obvious what the songs about but if you dont think so ill tell you. I think this song is about when you finally leave home and you think your leaving to have an adventure but you find something even better-true love, and when you find that you realize that its what you left to find in the first place. :D

    MemoryI'm from a town just south of the Mason Dixon line... I'm wondering if anyone knows how exact this song actually is because I only know of one all night diner in the area and that'd be pretty cool if they actually went there. I love this song. It gave me chills when I heard it.
