lyrics

Well I am not home, but I shall not wander
I'll wait to see what my time on Earth will bring
I was sent to roam, and I will not squander
These precious days God's given me.

chorus
I'm gonna dig deep in the dirt of the valley
Climb up high on the mountainside
I'll open my eyes and look about me
Row across the oceantide

Come all you women, men and children
Listen to what mother says
She has been scarred, bruised and beaten
But she has got the will to live

All that she, wants is for her babies
To have a better life at hand
Yet they partake of her riches
And forsake her in the end

chorus

When all my years have gone before me
And my race is almost run
I will look up to the stars in Heaven
I know my journey's just begun

chorus
