Take me back to sunny Providence, Rhode Island
Set me down in a bed I can lie in
and grow old and someday die in
Won't you take me back to sunny Providence, Rhode Island?

I'll put a cut on my arm where it whispers
Talking back to a shadowy morning
Leave my body to the people left crying
Bury me up in sunny Providence, Rhode Island

Don't get me wrong, I've got nothing but desire to fight it
I'll grab a bottle pour my feelings inside it
Don't get me wrong, if I stagger as I walk down the street
if I stumble and I fall to my knees
Well, don't get me wrong, but I'd rather that you just walk on

I had a dream last night: you were living
We got to talking and you found yourself smiling
Said you were sorry for the things that you'd done
But the world had gone on, life had gotten tiring

So take me back to sunny Providence, Rhode Island
and set me down in a bed I can lie in
and grow old and someday die in
Bury me up in sunny Providence, Rhode Island

Don't get me wrong, I've got nothing but desire to fight it
I'll grab a bottle pour my feelings inside it
Don't get me wrong, if I stagger as I walk down the street
if I stumble and I fall to my knees
Well, don't get me wrong, but I'd rather that you just walk on

Well take me back to sunny Providence, Rhode Island
and set me down in a bed I can lie in
and grow old and someday die in
Won't you take me back to sunny Providence, Rhode Island?
