Lonesome, nobody knows me,
Sometimes I think nobody cares;
Concrete rivers and concrete faces,
Wind blows hard but she don't blow fair.
Oh, the many colored mountains,
And oh, the blue and singing sea;
I want to think of far off places,
Fill the empty thoughts in me.

Liyanna, how I want to see you,
To be home again, far away from here;
Oh, Liyanna, how I want to see you,
To be home again, far away from here.

Sally's gone, she wouldn't have me,
Peter he's hit the road again;
Jimmy's gone to make a million,
Oh, it gets so you don't know your friends.
Summer's gone, the leaves are turning,
Should have had some change of plans;
But how's a man to know those secrets,
In a strange and different land?

Liyanna, how I want to see you,
To be home again, far away from here;
Oh, Liyanna, how I want to see you,
To be home again, far away from here.

Well, the leaves are skipping down the pavement,
Sun's ice blue on cobblestone;
One man's thinking of his supper,
Another he's thinking of his home.
Go away you fancy ladies,
And keep your foolish lies away;
I'm not the one to hear those stories,
Don't understand the words you say.

Liyanna, how I want to see you,
To be home again, far away from here;
Oh, Liyanna, how I want to see you,
To be home again, far away from here.
To be home again, far away from here.
