G b C D/G b C D
I don't know if you can see
The changes that have come over me
In these last few days I've been afraid
That I might drift away
I've been telling old stories, singing songs
That make me think about where I've come from
That's the reason why I seem
So far away today.
Let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
a G D G
Caledonia, you're calling me, now I'm going home
But if I should become a stranger
Know it would make me more than sad
a D G b C D
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had.
I have moved and I've kept on moving
Proved the points that I needed proving
Lost the friends that I needed losing
Found others on the way.
I have kissed the lassies and left them sying
Stolen dreams, yes, there's no denying
I’ve traveled hard, sometimes with conscience flying
Somewhere with the wind.
Now I'm sitting here before the fire
The empty room, the forest choir
The flames have cooled, don't get any higher
They've withered, now they've gone.
I'm steady thinking, my way is clear
And I know what I will do tomorrow
When hands have shaken, the kisses float
Then I will disappear.
