Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere

Album: Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere (1969)
  • I think I'd like to go back home
    And take it easy
    There's a woman that I'd like to get to know
    Living there

    Everybody seems to wonder
    What it's like down here
    I gotta get away from this day-to-day running around,
    Everybody knows this is nowhere

    Everybody, everybody knows
    Everybody knows

    Every time I think about back home
    It's cool and breezy
    I wish that I could be there right now
    Just passing time

    Everybody seems to wonder
    What it's like down here
    I gotta get away from this day-to-day running around
    Everybody knows this is nowhere

    Everybody, everybody knows
    Everybody knows
