I’m leaving home now that I’m 20
My eyes are filled with wanderlust
I took everything I had
put it in a burlap bag
and I’m headed out to see the earth

I am eastbound for Pittsburgh
to make my money forging steel
When my pockets have been filled
and my poverty’s been killed
I’ll head out whichever way I feel

I’ve got an uncle on the Atlantic
He owns a trawler up in Maine
Well there’s a job for me
fishing on the sea
working for a boss who shares my name

I’ve heard tales of California
where the sky is never grey
and the crops will always grow
and the winter brings no snow
and honest work earns honest pay

But first I’ve gotta leave Ohio.
