Well I’m packin' up, 'cause they say I'm leavin',
Trouble is, I don't know where to,
So I stuff all my stuff, into the box,
Close the windows and check the locks,
And head out, to find me someplace new.

Some guy tells me he thinks he knows a spot,
But the rent's too much, it's everything I got,
I don't need all, I just want some,
Place to put the bass and the drums,
And call my home sweet home again.

Take me back to the country,
Take me back to the coast,
Take me back, to all those places, that I love the most.

Oh I wish, I knew where I was going,
But I never really have all along,
So I'll sit here and strum the strings,
Clear my voice and begin to sing,
A song, about having nowhere to go.

As time grows thin, I fear I must be leaving,
It's time, to put it all behind,
I can't believe it's so hard to find,
Me a little piece of peace of mind,
But I guess that's just the tie that binds,
Well I guess, it's just the tie that binds.

Take me back to the country,
Take me back to the coast,
Take me to all those places, that I love the most,

Take me back to Vancouver,
Take me back to Montreal,
Take me back to St. John's Harbour, in the evening, in the fall.

In the evening, in the fall.
