lyrics

I was born in the desert and raised at sea.
Had everything I need but water to drink.

My head's in heaven and my feet on the ground,
Ain't got time for settling down.

Got everything I need but nowhere to stay.
Listen can you hear what the Katydids say?

Ain't got time for fooling with you.
Gonna find out if you've been true.

Listen can't you hear what the Katydids say?
I wrote you a letter and mailed it today.

Gonna find out if you been true.
If y'ain't I know what I've got to do.

I wrote my Katy a letter to say:
I've been everywhere I'm coming home to stay.

If I can't come home I'll keep traveling round
With my head in heaven and my feet on the ground.

I been everywhere a man could be.
I was born in the desert and raised at sea.
