Home Is Where the Heart Is
by Lady Antebellum



I felt I was spinning my wheels
Before too long the road was calling
I packed everything I owned
So sure that I was leaving this small town life behind for good
And not a single tear was falling
It took leaving for me to understand
Sometimes your dreams just aren't what life has planned

[Chorus]
Mama said home is where the heart is
When I left that town
I made it all the way to West Virginia
And that's where my heart found
Exactly where I'm supposed to be
It didn't take much time
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line

I worked third shift at an all night diner
Only stayed to save a little money for
Enough gas to make it to the east coast
That's when I saw the brightest pair of
Deep blue eyes walking straight into my life
And every night we talked till it became so clear
And I could feel those dreams inside shifting gears
'Cause love brought me here

[Chorus]

And I'm standing in my veil about to say I do
As Mama smiles with tear drops in her eyes
And then I realize there's something Mama always knew
Love is what I really left to find

She said home is where the heart is
When I left that town
I made it all the way to West Virginia
And that's where my heart found
Exactly where I'm supposed to be
It didn't take much time
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line

Mama said home is where the heart is
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line

Mama said home is where the heart is
It's just south of the Mason Dixon line
