I've seen the yellow lights go down the Mississippi
I've seen the bridges of the world and they're for real
I've had a red light of the wrist
Without me even gettin' kissed
It still seems so unreal

I've seen the morning in the mountains of Alaska
I've seen the sunset in the east and in the west
I've sang the glory that was Rome
And passed the hound-dog singer's home
It still seems for the best

And I'm far, far away
With my head up in the clouds
And I'm far, far away
With my feet down in the crowds
Lettin' loose around the world
But the call of home is loud
Still is loud

I've seen the Paris lights from high upon Montmartre
And felt the silence hanging low in No-Man's-Land
And all those spanish nights were fine
It wasn't only from the wine
It still seems all in hand

And I'm far, far away
With my head up in the clouds
And I'm far, far away
With my feet down in the crowds
Lettin' loose around the world
But the call of home is loud
Still is loud

I've seen the yellow lights go down the Mississippi
The grand Bahama island stories carry on
And all those arigato smiles
Stay in your memory for a while
There still seems more to come

And I'm far, far away
With my head up in the clouds
And I'm far, far away
With my feet down in the crowds
Lettin' loose around the world
But the call of home is loud
Still is loud

And I'm far, far away
With my head up in the clouds
And I'm far, far away
With my feet down in the crowds
And I'm far, far away
But the sound of home is loud
Still is loud

    General CommentI genuinely like this song. It has meaningful lyrics and a great glam-rock tune. In my opinion, the lyrics explain how one can travel the world over and visit some of the most amazing places, but, ultimately, home is the place we love the most. Great song and an amazing band!

    General CommentNoddy wrote the lyrics while they were on tour in America and he was literally looking over the red lights of the Mississippi.

    General CommentIt's such a great song, why noone had commented on this ? ;/
    When I listen to it, I always have these 3 words in my mind - Home, sweet home. ;)

    MemoryThis song was played at my Uncle's funeral a couple of days ago. He grew up as a massive Slade fan and this song was absolutely perfect for the occasion. He is now unfortunately far, far away but the call of home will always be as loud.

    Rest in peace David.
