I don’t know if you can see

       F                                     Bb

The changes that have come over me

             F                           C7sus4

In these last few days I’ve been afraid


That I might drift away

Bbmaj7                                      C7

So I’ve been telling old stories, singing songs

        F                                Bb

That make me think about where I came from

        F                         C7

And that’s the reason why I seem


So far away today



F                                C

Let me tell you that I love you

           F                                  Bb

That I think about you all the time


Caledonia you’re calling me


And now I’m going home


If I should become a stranger


You know that it would make me more than sad

                            C                               F

Caledonia’s been everything I’ve ever had


I have moved, and kept on moving

Proved the points that I needed proving

Lost the friends I needed losing

Found others on the way

I have tried, and kept on trying  [Originally: I have kissed the ladies and left them crying]

Stolen dreams, yes there’s no denying

I have traveled hard with conscience flying

Somewhere in the wind



Now I’m sitting here before the fire

The empty room, the forest choir

The flames that could not get any higher

They’ve withered now they’ve gone

But I’m steady thinking, my way is clear

And I know what I must do tomorrow

When the hands are shaken and the kisses blown

They I will disappear
