Headin' Eastbound (Joan Morrissey)

Straight off the farm ten years ago
went first to see the sights,
I came here to the city
to see all those pretty lights;
The buildings and the people
were exciting to my mind,
I've seen it all and had a ball
but now at last I find.

I'm going back to the good life
that I left long ago,
Headin' eastbound out of this big town
that they all call Toronto;
I'm headin' out on that eastbound train
that's leavin' here right now,
I'm headin' back to my daddy's farm
'cause he's got fields to plow.

The air down here is clean and sweet
and smells so good to me,
There's room to walk and even talk
and just be fancy free;
The ten years that I've wasted
foolin' 'round in this old town,
I'm going to try and get them back,
that's why I'm homeward bound.

I'm going back to the good life
that I left long ago,
Headin' eastbound out of this big town
that they all call Toronto;
I'm headin' out on that eastbound train
that's leavin' here right now,
I'm headin' back to my daddy's farm
'cause he's got fields to plow.
I'm headin' back to my daddy's farm
'cause he's got fields to plow.
