I felt I was spinning my wheels
Before too long the road was calling
I packed everything I own
So sure that I was leaving this small town life behind for good
And not a single tear was falling
It took leaving for me to understand
Sometimes your dreams just aren't what life has planned

Mama said home is where the heart is
When I left that town
I made it all the way to West Virginia
And that's where my heart found
Exactly where I'm supposed to be
It didn't take much time
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line

I worked third shift at an all night diner
Only stayed to save a little money for
Enough gas to make it to the east coast
That's when I saw the brightest pair of
Deep blue eyes walking straight into my life
And every night we talked till it became so clear
And I could feel those dreams inside shifting gears
Cause love brought me here

[Repeat Chorus]

And I'm standing in my veil about to say I do
As mama smiles with tear drops in her eyes
And then I realize there's something mama always knew
Love is what I really left to find

[Repeat Chorus]

    Where a woman keeps her house clean and her family fed. Where a woman endures love, lust, pain, heartche, romance, and still stays with her man and has his back nomatter what has been done, its where forgivement is and true love lies always waiting until the end...

    Even though you might not know where you are going still go. Follow where you are being pulled and it might suprise you. It might be where you call home. Your mom will always know why you are really doing things. Go where you want to and see if you can put your roots there. See if it is where home is. You might even find the person that makes it home for you.
