Guitars ring in the dead of night
The scene was so blue and sound so right
You're homesick

Listen close to the guitar man
A native son in a foreign land
Boy's homesick

Where were you in '69
Smokin' that dope and drinking that wine
And you were an outlaw

Piston drums beat an old refrain
Shakes your feet and it pounds your brain
Like a buzz saw

He's homesick
For days by gone
He's homesick
For home sweet home

In the darkness, down the hall
Black light posters on the wall
Jimi Hendrix

Someone's lost in yesterday
Hazy dreams of Monterey
And Woodstock, alright

Guitars ring in the dead of night
The scene was so blue and sound so right
Makes you homesick

Listen close to the guitar man
A native son in a foreign land
The boy is homesick

He's homesick
For days by gone
He's homesick
For home sweet home

But he's homesick
For days by gone
He's homesick
For his home sweet home

He's homesick
For them times gone by
He's homesick
For that kickin' southern sky

Homesick
Listen close to the guitar man
Said he's homesick

Boy is homesick
Listen close to the guitar man
He's homesick
