Subterranean Homesick Blues

I'm feeling completely homesick today... I have old songs in my head, spring temperatures all around me and the smell of the warm summer grass beckoning me back home. I would like be sitting out in the middle of the pasture at Mom and Dad's house in my favorite spot there just where the pasture begins to go downhill-the best spot in the whole world, on a big fluffy homemade quilt, sketching or writing poetry, then lying back and watching the clouds roll over an azure blue sky... Just miss home so bad sometimes, miss my folks and miss pure, wild youth. Time is truly an overachiever...

Yep, that's all I have to say today. Take it away Bob...

I miss the Pennines (the moors). I'd ride up there on me bike and just sit n watch the clouds. The Pennines is home. I'll never go back though I don't think.

I'm all sad now :(

I sometimes miss home too..although I am technically still 'home' I am 'not' home. I long for those carefree days of no worry...when mom and dad took all my problems away.

Brings back sweet memories, my brothers and sister and I would play this song on the record player and sing along and dance around until we were dizzy.
Well the times they did change and we've flipped more years than bobby did his word cards .....nice to know that Johnny's still in the basement.....jinks.
