lyrics

If you drive in by the lake,
There’s a levy on the crossing.
The faster road to take,
But it’s gonna cost you more.
The price i’ll gladly pay if it
gets me home much quicker,
You know I cannot stay away from you,
one minute more.

Slowcoach, carry me over the border.
Take me where my lover waits for me.
Slowcoach, wont you tarry no longer.
No wonder this old heart’s a refugee.
Well if home is where the heart is,
Well thats where mine should be.

I’ll write you every day,
And I wait upon your letter.
Words, so hard to say,
flow like tributes from my pen.
“how are you?”, “I miss you!”,
“I’m glad you’re feeling better”
You know I cannot stay away from you,
one night again.

Slowcoach, carry me over the border.
Take me where my lover waits for me.
Slowcoach, wont you tarry no longer.
No wonder this old heart’s a refugee.
Well if home is where the heart is,
Well thats where mine should be.

The world, they say’s
Getting smaller every day,
Well it’s the opposite I’d say
when I’m without you.
Well it’s always been this way,
It’s the price I have to pay,
Just to be out on the road to sing about you.

The miles to Journey’s End
Well they always seem the longest.
Sure, you’ve got your friends
For to keep your spirits high.
Somewhere round the bend,
Between the diamonds and the rubies
Stretched so far ahead, You wish that
You had wings to fly.

Slowcoach, carry me over the border.
Take me where my lover waits for me.
Slowcoach, dont you tarry no longer.
No wonder this old heart’s a refugee.
Well if home is where the heart is,
Well thats where mine should be. (repeat)
