Words and music by Arlo Guthrie

Not so long ago I set out on this road
With my friends and my companions by my side
And I think of you wherever I do go
I'm a rambler, I ain't hard to satisfy.

CHORUS:
Won't be long till I am home again with you
Just a few more miles to go
Won't be long till I can get back on my own
Won't be long till I can spend my time with you

In the airport I'm standing in a line
Search my pockets, check me out and I'm alright
It's not hard but it ain't easy all the time
To be in some other town most every night

CHORUS

Oh, I miss the singing from porch banjo nights
And when friends come by to pass the time away
And when the winds that chill the Bershires in the night
Heading east through Massachusetts toward the bay.
