Woke up this morning
Riding on a homebound train
Pockets full of memories
Thinking about the good old days
Bought a bottle of wine
With the last dime to my name
Jumped an Oslo freight
Running through the pouring rain

Oh mama, don't turn out the light
There's a shadow on the moon outside
Keep it burning in the window to guide my way tonight
Don't lock the door, I'm coming home for sure
I've missed the old home place
I am never gonna leave anymore

This side of the city
I felt the cold wind blow
More than a heartache
It chilled me to the bone
I squeeze my empty bottle
And the tears began to flow
It slipped right through my fingers
With a few more miles to go

Oh mama, don't turn out the light
There's a shadow on the moon outside
Keep it burning in the window to guide my way tonight
Don't lock the door, I'm coming home for sure
I've missed the old home place
I am never gonna leave anymore

Anymore... Anymore...
