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


CHORUS:

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


repeat CHORUS


[dobro & slide guitar solo]


repeat CHORUS


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


repeat CHORUS


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


CHORUS:

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


repeat CHORUS 2 times


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

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