Standard (EADGBE)

Sometimes I wanna pack it all up

Get on a bus and move to Vermont

Or Maine, or any of those states back East

That I remember

Sometimes I wanna go back to school

An East Coast college with some history

I’d be satisfied I know

In the simple things.


Longtime sunshine

Longtime sunshine upon me

Sometimes I wanna build a house

With a wood stove or a fireplace

In the middle of the living

An old piano

Sometimes it don’t seem so bad

Settle down with a good woman

Leave this lonely life behind

For ever and ever

[Chorus x 2]

Sometimes I wanna get in a car

Close my eyes and drive real fast

Keep on going till I get some place

Where I can truly rest

[Chorus x 2, sing octave higher]
