Gonna leave this town
said my goodbyes today
packing up my car
say what you want to say

This town’s too small
for my big dreams
Headed down to New Orleans
Tulsa, Oklahoma
Little Rock, or LA

Gonna see me some mountains
go fishing in the sea
getting out of Iowa
why don’t you go with me

That old highway before me
past in my rearview mirror
life of adventure and stories
swallowing fear of failure

But I might miss my home
the only one I call my own
I might miss my family’s love
the only one I’ve ever known

Gonna see me some cornfields
fish in the Mississippi
getting back to Iowa
why don’t you stay with me?
