Way up north, where the snow flies
and the sun don't hardly shine
If it weren't for, my true love
I'd have long ago lost my mind
I'd have long ago lost my mind

There's good folks here and good folks there
most everywhere I go
But the land of my heart is down
where the snow white cotton grows
where the snow white cotton grows

(Chorus:)
When the river runs over from the melting snow
we will take to the higher ground
when the water goes down again, we'll saddle our old paint
we'll be homeward bound
me and my love will be homeward bound

(Instrumental)

Heartstrings hold tighter than the roots of a live oak tree
holding through tornado wind
tougher than timber, stronger than steel
they'll guide me back southward again
they'll guide me back southward again

(Repeat Chorus)
