Lyrics

Do you remember the farmhouse up the road
standing crooked still? It’s standing crooked still
The last time I saw you, you were going down that road
And you’ve been gone so long

So come home Ramblin’ Charlie, come back home
Back to the place you know so well and where your roots still grow
And I will wear your ring and you can lay me down
If you promise, cross your heart, you’re staying in this town

Riches, they tempt you; push and pull your soul,
Bring your weakened knees to the floor
What you hold onto really holds your more
And you’ve been gone too long

So come home Ramblin’ Charlie, come back home
Back to the place you know so well and where your roots still grow
And I will wear your ring and you can lay me down
If you promise, cross your heart, you’re staying in this town

So leave your dirty coalmines, your merchant ships and pipelines
They’re a hungry beast you cannot tame
Throw away the bottle. It can only leave you hollow
And time will catch up to you just the same

So come home Ramblin’ Charlie, come back home
Back to the place you know so well and where your roots still grow
And I will wear your ring and you can lay me down
If you promise, cross your heart, you’re staying in this town
