Massachusetts

Gather ’round the bonfire for some sh*t-kicking New England bluegrass, boys and girls! Feel free to sing along!

Massachusetts

Born so near the ocean I can taste it
Summer’s so damn short you don’t dare to waste it
I’ve seen the Northern Lights, and I’ve seen the Southern Cross
You can take the warmer nights, I’ll take the morning frost
Of Massachusetts

I lived a while in Texas, so don’t get me wrong
There’s something ‘bout that Lone Star that makes you feel so strong
And I’m fine with New York City when I don’t want any sleep
But those places aren’t as pretty as the company I keep
In Massachusetts

Take me home to the dunes out on the Cape
Take me home to those summer nights where you and I escape
Take me home even if it’s only for a while
Take me home and count the years down like the miles
To Massachusetts

I’ve climbed the Rocky Mountains and stood out in the sky
Listened to the west wind and let the time roll by
If you ask me where my heart is, Colorado comes to mind
But none of it compares with the love I left behind
In Massachusetts

Take me home to the dunes out on the Cape
Take me home to those summer nights where you and I escape
Take me home even if it’s only for a while
Take me home and count the years down like the miles
To Massachusetts
