"Please come to Boston for the springtime
I'm staying here with some friends and they've got lots of room
You can sell your paintings on the sidewalk
By a cafe were I hope to be working soon
Please come to Boston
She said "No,
Won't you come home to me."
She said "Ramblin' boy, won't ya settle down?
Boston ain't your kinda town
There ain't no gold and there ain't nobody like me
I'm the number one fan of a man from Tennessee"
Please come to Denver where the snow falls
We'll move up into the mountains so high that we can't be found
And throw "I love you" echoes down the canyon
And we'll lie awake at night 'til they come back around
Please come to Denver
She said "No,
Baby you come home to me."
She said "Ramblin' boy, why don't ya settle down?
Denver ain't your kinda town
There ain't no gold and there ain't nobody like me
I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee"
Please come to L.A., we'll live forever
The California life alone is just too hard to bear
We'll live in a house that looks out over the ocean
And we'll see stars that fell from the sky, livin' up on the hill
Please come to L.A.
She said "No,
Baby you come home to me."
She said "Hey ramblin' boy, why don't ya settle down?
L.A. ain't your kinda town
There ain't no gold and there ain't nobody like me
I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee"
Please come to Boston for the springtime
Please come to Boston for the springtime
Please come to Boston
Won't you please come to Boston
Won't you please come home to me
Won't you please come to Denver
Won't you please come to me (to L.A.)
Won't you please come back to your family (to Boston)
Won't you please come to L.A.
Won't you please come to Denver where the snow falls"

    Sounds to me like he has grand ideas and wants to travel. She's ready to settle down and is content being in tn. They both want to be with each other but have very different views about how they will live their lives.
