lyrics

I’ve lived two years in Virginia and it’s not bad
But I’ve got this twitching in my feet
I’ve been looking into Texas
Or I might pack up my guitar and go to Nashville Tennessee

I spent a year in Pennsylvania
It was cold and dark and generally ugly
I’ve been rambling like a cowboy but it never seems to help
Is there a home somewhere for me?

Oh, restless heart stop traveling, let me stay a while
I’ve got dinner on the stove, I’ve got laundry to fold
I’ve got these babies to hold and you are wild.

Come in and sit down
Come on, let me hold your keys
You’re been running round and round, round and round,
Why don’t you settle down with me?

We’ve been working on the roof
We’ve been planting in the yard
These are the things that people do, do, do
Why is sitting still so hard?

Oh, restless heart stop traveling, let me stay a while
I’ve got dinner on the stove, I’ve got laundry to fold
I’ve got these babies to hold and you are wild.

You’ve got a highway where your house should be
And wings instead of hands
You’ve got the patience of a gypsy,
A proverbial “ants-in-pants”
You see I had a couple kids
And went and bought a house
I can’t keep running like I used to
Won’t you slow down?

Oh, restless heart stop traveling, let me stay a while
