    Lyrics:

    I wish I had a stint in New Orleans
    On the train tracks of my life
    And I'm glad about that forest
    I grew up in with groves of pine
    Ah well I had a stay in the rain it goes
    From the clouds to where it's dry
    As I sat and ate that apple
    I never wondered why
    The months still bring with them some changes
    Some are old and some are new
    Shimmering gold beams on the pavement
    Of the streets that I roll through

    If I have to stay by the westerly
    At the corner of your mind
    Well I'll chalk it all up to trouble

    Singin' old childhood
    Where did you go?
    I like the summer, but I love to watch it snow
    Old childhood
    What did you do?
    The leaves fall in autumn, but the springtime's when they bloom

    I wish I traveled 'cross the Atlantic
    And saw the lands to which I vail
    Explored canals down in Venice
    Felt the winds on the shore of Wales
    For now it's roads and peaks in the Midwest
    Rivers flow in Texas too
    Pedal far across the Southland
    Junipero Sierras' dew

    And if it's true that Massachusetts
    Was the best in my life
    Well I'll chalk it all up to trouble and strife

    I wish I had a stint in New Orleans
    But I like to think it's true
    That if I had that stint in New Orleans
    I might never have met you

    And if I have to stay by the westerly
    At the corner of your mind
    Well New Orleans ain't coming to mind

    Singin' old childhood
    Where did you go?
    I like the summer, but I love to watch it snow
    Old childhood
    What did you do?
    The leaves fall in autumn, but the springtime's when they bloom

    And if it's true that Massachusetts
    Was the best in my life
    Well I'll chalk it all up when I get home in time Show less
