Lyrics:

Where I'm Bound ( Matt Reno)

nothing ever happens, not in this damn town
dare to dream and they'll shoot you down
for looking past the end of the streets where they live and die
around here son you keep your head down and you don't ask why (no sir!)

so is it any wonder I've been down on my knees
praying for a miracle to set me free
now there ain't a lot keep me here as far as I can see
well maybe I'll go try my luck out in Tennessee

everybody's looking for something, ain't they?
and everybody wants to be free
and I got a yearning inside me for Memphis Tennessee

here comes the night to kill the daytime blues
and the click, click, click of her high heel shoes
this just in baby, a little breaking news
I'm tuning up my guitar and tying on my flying shoes
And honey wear your red dress cos I'm gonna sing the blues

well everybody's looking for something baby
and everybody wants to be free
and my heart's beating inside me for Nashville Tennessee

There's been a lotta good times with the regular crowd
tonight's the night at the lost and found
now there's a smokestack blowing way out past the burying ground
yeah and a long whistle blowing and you know where I'm bound
there's a long whistle blowing and you know where I'm bound, that's right!

so if you're coming with me girl there ain't a minute to lose
I stay another day I'm gonna blow a fuse
why don't you let your hair down and slip into your dancing shoes
and honey wear your red dress cos I'm gonna sing the blues
I'm gonna sing the blues
