Let it be printed
Let it be known
I'm leaving you
I'm Going Home

And all you can do
Is Just watch me go

I've put you down
I've talked you up
Defended your honor
And packed it in and picked it up

And all you can do
Is Just watch me go

From the eastern seaboard
The land locked midwest
The keys the alps the black hills
And the Budapest

With my heart in a sling
Tail between my legs
Swinging
I'm sorry for leavin'

But when the palm trees bow their heads
No matter how cruel I've been
La, you always let me back in

And you can bury me when my body breaks
In the earth that created me
In the Golden State
My mama and her brother
And their Mama too

Cause I had a dream I was carried on backs
Of a thousand green birds
And they carried me to a place without words
And there was nothin' but there was everything

But when the palm trees bow their heads
No matter how wrong I've been
La, you always let me back in

But when the palm trees bow their heads
No matter how cruel I've been
La, you always let me back in
