Carry Me Home

Appears on

Lyrics

Papa left the house this morning, with a briefcase in his hand
Mama took the kids to school, before she went to work
My sister went to Georgia, to get away from the smog
My brother went on an interview, still trying to get a job

And Lord, oh Lord, I did everything I could do
It’s just a phase in life, that everybody goes through
And Lord, oh Lord, I did everything I could do
And Lord, oh Lord

A friend of ours got married, everybody had a ball
They partied 'til the morning, and they still wanted more
The couple looked so happy, I wonder if they'll change
Things never stay the same, so let’s move along

And Lord, oh Lord, I did everything I could do
It’s just a phase in life, that everybody goes through
And Lord, oh Lord, I did everything I could do
And Lord, oh Lord

Carry me home,
Don’t be too long

Ooh, I did everything I could do
