  • Have you been wearing holes in your boots out there?
    Have you been kicking bones in the desert sand?
    There's a wolf inside the cave and another in the clouds
    I've seen them chewing on, on the shadows in your eyes

    And it's here at home I wait for your wanders to be still
    Oh, it's here at home I wait for your wanders to be still
    And I won't drag my feet in whatever dirt you track in
    No, I won't drag my feet in whatever dirt you track in

    Will you look at me when your face shows the lines of years?
    While you've been away I have needed your strong hands
    California hills could surely welcome us back home
    But the way toward the crop of gold is not far from the snow
    No, the way toward the crop of gold is not far from the snow

    And it's here at home I wait for your wanders to be still
    Oh, it's here at home I wait for your wanders to be still
    And I won't drag my feet in whatever dirt you track in
    No, I won't drag my feet in whatever dirt you track in

    And it's here at home I wait for your wanders to be still
    And I won't drag my feet in whatever dirt you track in
