Well, I've had my taste of city livin',
Punchin' time clocks in dirty factories;
I'm goin' back to the place my heart belongs now,
Where the rocks meet the water way down east.

Well, I've worked for every fool the Lord made,
But I ain't got a dime to call my own;
I've spent all my better days goin' nowhere,
I've been west of heaven way too long.

I'm gonna drive till this pickup hits the water,
I'm gonna drive till I see the lights of home;
I'm gonna drive till my wheels
are on that shoreline,
Till I ain't west of heaven anymore.

Way down east you always know your neighbour,
And the air is always sweet and clean;
And you always got a friend that you can count on,
If you ever find yourself in need.

Everything I need is in my suitcase,
All the rest will only slow me down;
Well, those old black and whites
can try and catch me,
But there ain't no way they'll ever stop me now.

I'm gonna drive till this pickup hits the water,
I'm gonna drive till I see the lights of home;
I'm gonna drive till my wheels
are on that shoreline,
Till I ain't west of heaven anymore.

I'm gonna drive till I see that ol' shoreline,
Till I ain't west of heaven..... anymore.
