You take a rickety plane
From seattle up into anchorage 
You step on the concrete  Gazing at the midnight sun

Jump in my pickup 
And we'll drive  Bring your troubles 
Down highway nine

I got a pullout couch
And a job lined up at the cannery  Catch a ride to homer, alaska 
Brother, the drinks will be on me

We'll raise a glass 
Lift a chalice  Welcome to alice's champagne palace
The finest bar on the strip in homer, alaska 
If you're from new york, la, dallas,
You'll find a home at the champagne palace
 Alice will pour you a cold one
You go ahead and ask her,
If you're running away to alaska 

Now the mountains rise from ocean to sky
In homer, alaska 
And they'll steal your breath 
And your troubles in the blink of an eye
You'll hear a band with a steel guitar
There's a window seat right at the bar

The whales are breeching 
And alice is preaching 
"like a rolling stone"
She'll push a mason jar
 Across the bar and say
"mister, welcome home"

You've never been to
A prettier place than homer, alaska 
You'll never find a kinder face
Than the one behind the bar
Homer's a town full of misfit toys
 Renegade women, runaway boys
Everybody's got a
 Story here in homer town
I guess sometimes you gotta go
To the end of the earth 
Just to turn yourself around
