LyricsEdit

Wherever you're going
I wanna go
Wherever you're headed
Can you let me know?

I don't mind catching up
I'm on my way
Just can't take the thought
Of you miles away

And I know you're going somewhere
To make a better life
I hope that you find it
On the first try

And even though it kills me
That you have you go
I know that I'll be sadder
If you never hit the road, so

Farewell, somebody's gonna miss you
Farewell, somebody's gonna wish that
You were here, that somebody's me

I will write to tell you
What's going on
But you won't miss nothing
But the same ol' song

If you don't mind catching up
I'll spend a day
Telling you stories
About a land far way

But I know you're going somewhere
To make a better life
I hope that you find it
On the first try

And even though it kills me
That you have you go
I know that I'll be sadder
If you never hit the road, so

Farewell, somebody's gonna miss you
Farewell, somebody's gonna wish that
You were here

Farewell, somebody's gonna miss you
Farewell, somebody's gonna wish that
You were here, that somebody's me

And I'm gonna try to hold it all in
Try to hold back my tears
So it don't make you stay here, yeah
I'm'a try to be a big girl now
'Cause I don't wanna be
The reason you don't live

Farewell, somebody's gonna miss you
Farewell, somebody's gonna wish that
You were here

Farewell, somebody's gonna miss you
Farewell, somebody's gonna wish that
You were here, that somebody's me
