I spent twenty years tryin' to get outta this place
I was lookin' for somethin' I couldn't replace
I was runnin' away from the only thing I've ever known

Like a blind dog without a bone
I was a gypsy lost in the twilight zone
I hijacked a rainbow and crashed into a pot of gold

I been there, done that, I ain't looking back
On the seeds I've sown
Savin' dimes spendin' too much time on the telephone
Who says you can't go home?

Who says you can't go home?
There's only one place they call me one of their own
Just a hometown boy born a rollin' stone
Who says you can't go home?

Who says you can't go back?
Been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There's only one place left I wanna go
Who says you can't go home?

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright, alright

I went as far as I could, tried to find a new face
There isn't one of these lines that I would erase
Lived a million miles of memories on that road

With every step I take I know that I'm not alone
You take the home from the boy but not the boy from his home
These are my streets the only life I've ever known
Who says you can't go home?

Who says you can't go home?
There's only one place they call me one of their own
Just a hometown boy born a rollin' stone
Who says you can't go home?

Who says you can't go back?
Been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There's only one place left I wanna go
Who says you can't go home?

It doesn't matter where you are
It doesn't matter where you go
If it's a million miles away or just a mile up the road
Take it in, take it with you when you go
Who says you can't go home?

Who says you can't go back?
Been all around the world and as a matter of fact
There's only one place left I wanna go
Who says you can't go home?

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright
Who says you can't go home?

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright
Who says you can't go home?

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
It's alright, it's alright
Who says you can't go home?
