Willie Nelson – San Antonio lyrics

I was walking when the sun came up this morning
I was walking when the sun went down last night
Cursing the day that I walked away
From the loved ones and friends I know
In San Antonio

I was so intent in leaving home last Fall
All the world was mine and I could feel the call
Luring me on to places unknown, far from the hills of home
Back in San Antone

I must admit I'm just a home boy
A San Antone boy, a far from home boy
I hear the call of San Antonio
And that's where I plan to go

Fate has turned my back on all that I wanted so
Now I know that I was never meant to roam
So, I cursed the day that I walked away as I return to stay
In San Antonio, San Antonio, San Antonio
