I been away, been away too long....

I did my best tryin' to be a rollin' stone,
Just too good a time when I'm home;
Time to lay my head, lay my head down,
So put me anywhere in St John's town.

Where Southside looks down, down, down,
Down on the town;
Can ya hear me?

Light up the light, I'll ride out the night till I'm,
Where the water's calm;
Pray for the weather, heave up the mains'l,
There's a good day comin' when you lay your head,
In St John's.

I been away, been away too long,
I been away, been away too long;
I been away, been away too long,
I been away, been away too long.

I have too good a time when I'm home,
Hey bud! Wha's ya at? Wha's goin' on?

Where Southside looks down, down, down,
Down on the town;
Can ya hear me?

Light up the light, I'll ride out the night till I'm,
Where the water's calm;
Pray for the weather, heave up the mainsail,
There's a good day comin' when you lay your head,
In St John's.

I been away, been away too long,
I been away, been away too long;
Yeah, St John's.
I been away, been away too long,
I been away, been away too long,
In St John's.

Light up the light, I'll ride out the night till I'm,
Where the water's calm;
Pray for the weather, heave up the mains'l,
There's a good day comin' when you lay your head,
In St John's.

I been away, been away too long,
I been away, been away too long;
In St John's.
I been away, been away too long,
I been away, been away too long;
Mmm, St John's.
I been away, been away too long,
I been away, been away too long;
Aww, St John's.
I been away, been away too long.
