lyrics

TAKES ME HOME
Steve Morales / Terry Radigan

The roar of the crowd
The crack of the bat
The pop of the glove
My Dodgers hat
It takes me back it takes me home
Far from the war zone

One big strum
A fat G chord
I sing it out
I praise the lord
It takes me back it takes me home
Far from the war zone

My mind my body or sometimes both
Are back on mama’s couch
Watching her favorite shows
Little dreams of home
Get me through the tough days
Cause I’m a long way from Cal-I-For-Ni-A
I’m a long way from Cal-I-For-Ni-A

The sound of her voice
The curl of her hair
Her corny little jokes
Her “don’t you dare” stare
They take me back they take me home
Far from the war zone

My mind my body or sometimes both
Are lying in the arms of the girl I love most
Little dreams of home
Get me through the tough days
Cause I’m a long way from Cal-I-For-Ni-A
I’m a long way from Cal-I-For-Ni-A

A mansion on the coast
M on my arm
My little Stevearino
He’s my good luck charm
One day that’s gonna be my home
Far from the war zone

My mind my body or sometimes both
Are far from this desert out searching for hope
These little dreams
Get me through the tough days
Cause I’m a long way from Cal-I-For-Ni-A
I’m a long way from Cal-I-For-Ni-A

The roar of the crowd
The crack of the bat
The pop of the glove
My Dodgers hat
