Roll It on Home

Album: The Search for Everything (2017)
  • One last drink to wishful thinkin'
    And then another again
    The bar is getting brighter
    And the walls are closin' in

    Journey on the jukebox singin'
    Don't let the believin' end
    The one that you had eyes for
    Had their eyes for your best friend

    Nobody's gonna love you right
    Nobody's gonna take you in tonight
    Finish out the bottle or step into the light
    And roll it on home

    Roll it on home
    Roll it on home
    Tomorrow's another chance you won't go it alone
    If you roll it on home

    The last ten texts were with your ex
    And all of 'em were sent by you
    But you keep starin' at your phone like something's comin' through
    Come to grips and take your chips when the cards aren't goin' your way
    You've been here so long tonight's already yesterday

    Nobody's gonna love you right
    Nobody's gonna take you in tonight
    Finish out the bottle or step into the light
    And roll it on home

    Roll it on home
    Roll it on home
    Tomorrow's another chance you won't go it alone
    If you roll it on home

    Nobody's gonna love you right
    Nobody's gonna take you in tonight
    Drop a couple dollars, bum yourself a light
    And roll it on home

    Roll it on home
    Roll it on home
    Tomorrow's another chance you won't go it alone
    If you roll it on home

    Roll it on home
    Roll it on home
    Roll it on home Writer/s: John Clayton Mayer
