Marcus King Band, The - Homesick Lyrics




One more day, watch the sunrise from the highway
Lord one more night, sit alone again in the pale moonlight
And I don't know why, seems this ride takes so much longer every time
But my heart is due back south

One hundred miles, Lord they feel like a 100 years
While my sanity holds on, in my mind I hear her sing her favorite song
So damn tired of this ride, turn the headlights off let the moonlight guide
Lord it's gonna guide me back home

You're the only one that makes me homesick
You're the only one that keeps me honest
The only one
Lord the only one that keeps me from staying gone

Lord, it's been said to me, you oughta not write another love song
Lord, wouldn't they be wrong?
Dear, let me say, what's got me feeling' this way
I'll be ready again, Lord, to tackle this whole big world
As long as you let me come back home

Oooh got and 100 miles starts to feel like 100 years
As my sanity holds on, in my mind I hear her favorite song
So damn tired of this ride, turn my headlights off let the moonlight guide
Let it guide me back home

You're the only one that makes me homesick
You're the only one that keeps me honest
The only one
Lord the only one that keeps me from staying gone

You're the only one that makes me homesick
You're the only one that keeps me honest
The only one
Lord the only one that keeps me from staying gone

You're the only one that makes me homesick
You're the only one that keeps me honest
The only one
Lord the only one that keeps me from staying gone

You're the only one that makes me homesick
You're the only one that keeps me honest
The only one
Lord the only one that keeps me from staying gone

You're the only one that keeps me honest
You're the only one that makes me homesick
The only one
Lord the only one that keeps me from staying gone

    Watch the sunrise from the hi-way
    Oh..One more night
    Sit alone again in the pale moonlight
    And I don't know why
    Seems that ride .. takes so much longer every time
    But my heart is due back south
    Septa me ..
    I gotta write down another love song
    Wouldn't they be wrong
    Feelin' love ... a same has got me feelin' such a way
    I feel ready again ...
    LORD to take on this whole damn world
    Long as ya guide me back home

    You're the only one that makes me homesick

    You're the only one that keeps me honest
    The only one .. LORD you're the only one
    That keeps me from stayin' gone


    LORD at a.. hundred miles
    Said it feels like a hundred years
    While my sanity holds on
    In my mind I hear your favorite song
    So damn tired of this ride
    Turn my headlights on .. let the moonlight guide
    LORD let it guide me back home ....
    You're the only one that makes me homesick
    You're the only one.. that keeps me honest
    The only one .. LORD you're the only one
    That keeps me from stayin' gone

    You're the only one that makes me homesick
    You're the only one..that keeps me honest
    The only one .. LORD you're the only one
    That keeps me from stayin' gone ...

    Jammed out real nice in the Cumberland Caverns over the weekend. Meet MK on the way back in the cavern to camp for the night. Picked up a true and honestly good-guy down-to-earth vibe right off the bat. Cheers MKB! Keep it up...

  87. samtw1979

    god gave this ginger a pass and obviously created him with a soul. he realised he needed to make an exception when depriving all gingers of souls and just allow this special marcus ginger kid to have it in spades. rock on, marcus! the world's only ginger with a soul.

  88. Ron Hinchey

    yassss!!

  89. StockTradingWarrior Natalie Stetz

    So seriously good. This is the soulful kind of music we've all been waiting for. Great.

  90. Janne Kari

    GJ tymies teemu :D

  91. John Werner

    I just discovered MKB. Wow! So funky. Memphis reborn again. He's like an even more soulful Warren Haynes and that's a high compliment in my estimation. Love the brass with the soulful guitar and pure R&B vocals.

    Barbara Hall

    Warren produces him. To me, Marcus has a better and richer voice than Warren.

  92. Andrew Ritter

    What's the name of the song that's in the clip at the end??

  93. Humphrey McGee

    Why can't I wipe this smile off my face when listening to this?

  94. Paco
