lyrics

CHORUS
I’m going back home to Portland
I’m going back home to my sweet
I’m going back home to Portland
I’m going back home on my knees

VERSE 1
On the road away from Portland
Ambition lit his eyes
But the girl he left was mournin'
He left her as she cried

On the road away from Portland
Reveling in his dreams
Of wealth and life and grandeur
From Portland he was free
_to CHORUS

VERSE 2
He wandered far from Portland
But soon his dreams had paled
He saw his heart was empty
As he lifted up its veil

Looking home to Portland
Longing for his love
He wept and sighed in anguish
He’d been gone long enough
_to CHORUS

VERSE 3
Don’t listen to the papers
Don’t listen to the news
Be sure before you leave her
Your heart is not confused

He found his love in Portland
For her his heart had yearned
He saw she truly loved him
So to her he returned
_to CHORUS
