Neil Diamond – Do You Know The Way To San Jose? lyrics

Do you know the way to San Jose?
I've been away so long
I may go wrong and lose my way
Do you know the way to San Jose?
I'm going back
To find some peace of mind
In San Jose

L. A. Is a great big freeway
Put a hundred down and buy a car
In a week maybe two,
They'll make you a star
Weeks turn into years
How quick they pass
And all the stars that never were
Are parking cars and pumping gas

You can really breathe in San Jose
They've got a lot of space
There'll be a place where I can stay
I was born and raised in San Jose
I'm going back
To find some peace of mind
In San Jose

Fame and fortunes a magnet
It can pull you far away from home
With a dream in your heart
You are never alone
Dreams turn into dust and blow away
And there you are without a friend
You pack your car and ride away

I got lots of friends in San Jose
Do you know the way to San Jose?

L. A. Is a great big freeway
Put a hundred down and buy a car
In a week maybe two
They'll make you a star
Weeks turn into years
How quick they pass
And all the stars that never were
Are parking cars and pumping gas

I got lots of friends in San Jose
Do you know the way to San Jose?
Can't wait to get back home
To San Jose

    In the song, someone is on their way back to san jose after being gone for some time. They are asking the way for the fear of changes that may have been done to the old roads, new roads possibly built, changes made to places along the way that are no longer familar to this person. It is about taking a wrong turn, a wrong exit, etc. Causing them to lose their wayand nwver gettinf back on track.
