  • Alabama, Arkansas
    I do love my ma and pa
    Not that way that I do love you

    Holy moley, me oh my
    You're the apple of my eye
    Girl, I've never loved one like you

    Man, oh man, you're my best friend
    I scream it to the nothingness
    There ain't nothing that I need

    Well, hot and heavy, pumpkin pie
    Chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
    Ain't nothing please me more than you

    Ah, home, let me go home
    Home is wherever I'm with you
    Ah, home, let me go home
    Home is wherever I'm with you

    La, la, la, la, take me home
    Mommy, I'm coming home

    I'll follow you into the park
    Through the jungle, through the dark
    Girl, I never loved one like you

    Moats and boats and waterfalls
    Alleyways and pay phone calls
    I've been everywhere with you

    That's true, laugh until we think we'll die
    Barefoot on a summer night
    Never could be sweeter than with you

    And in the streets you run a-free
    Like it's only you and me
    Geez, you're something to see

    Ah, home, let me go home
    Home is wherever I'm with you
    Ah, home, let me go home
    Home is wherever I'm with you

    La, la, la, la, take me home
    Daddy, I'm coming home

    Jade Alexander, do you remember that day you fell out of my window?
    I sure do, you came jumping out after me
    Well, you fell on the concrete, nearly broke your ass,
    You were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you out to the hospital, you remember that?
    Yes, I do, well, there's something I never told you about that night
    What didn't you tell me?
    While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette you thought was going to be your last,
    I was falling deep, deeply in love with you, and I never told you until just now

    Ah, home, let me go home
    Home is wherever I'm with you
    Ah, home, let me go home
    Home is where I'm alone with you

    Home, let me come home
    Home is wherever I'm with you

    Ah, home, yes I am home
    Home is when I'm alone with you

    Alabama, Arkansas
    I do love my ma and pa
    Moats and boats and waterfalls
    Alleyways and pay phone calls

    Ah, home, let me go home
    Home is wherever I'm with you
    Ah, home, let me go home
    Home is where I'm alone with you
