THE PLACE I LOVE (Robert J. Purvis)

There's a log floating by in the river beside the tree that stands alone

As I lay on my back and I listen to the birds above

With the sun shining down across my face

You know I really wouldn't care

If I never went home 'cos this is the place I love


You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

You know I really like to spend some time alone

You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

I've let the bus pass, I'm not going home


With time on my hands

I lay down on the land and I look up to the sky

And on a branch above me sits a dove

You know it sings its song so sweetly that I really wouldn't care

If I never went home 'cos this is the place I love


You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

You know I really like to spend some time alone

You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

I've let the bus pass, I'm not going home


[dobro & slide guitar solo]


You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

You know I really like to spend some time alone

You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

I've let the bus pass, I'm not going home


People can't understand what it does for a man just to wander off alone

To lie beneath the trees and catch the sun

It's the simple things that mean the most

And I really wouldn't care

If I never went home 'cos this is the place I love


You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

You know I really like to spend some time alone

You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

I've let the bus pass, I'm not going home


You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

I've let the bus pass, I'm not going home


You know I really like to come here

THE PLACE I LOVE (Robert J. Purvis)
[Live on WCMF-FM in Rochester, November 5, 1975]

There's a log floating by in the river beside the tree that stands alone

As I lay on my back and I listen to the birds above

With the sun shining down across my face

You know I really wouldn't care

If I never went home 'cos this is the place I love


People can't understand what it does for a man just to wander off alone

To lie beneath the trees and catch the sun

It's the simple things that mean the most

And I really wouldn't care

If I never went home 'cos this is the place I love


You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

You know I really like to spend some time alone

You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

I've let the bus pass, I'm not going home


With time on my hands

I lay down on the land and I look up to the sky

And on a branch above me sits a dove

You know it sings its song so sweetly that I really wouldn't care

If I never went home 'cos this is the place I love


You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

You know I really like to spend some time alone

You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

I've let the bus pass, I'm not going home


You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

You know I really like to spend some time alone

You know I really like to come here

You know I really like to stay

I've let the bus pass, I'm not going home


I've let the bus pass, I'm not going home

I've let the bus pass, I'm not going home
