God gives me traveling shoes, 
God gave me the wanderer’s eye 
God gave me a few gold coins to help me to the other side 
Looked around and said, “Be careful how small things grow” 
God gave me traveling shoes and I knew that it was time to go

Sent in the ship at night to take me to the hidden port 
Found me the key at last to open up the prison door 
Brought down the blackbird's wings, gifted me with beggar's eyes 
Sent in the jackals to tell me I should say bye, bye, bye

I'm home, home 
Home, home, home 
And I'm home, home 
Home, home, home

But I'm miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away 
Where can I hide?

God gave me one last chance, gave me one last reprieve 
Jah gave me hunger, gave me the air to breathe 
Gave me one suitcase, gave me one last goodbye 
Gave me traveling shoes, without them I would surely die, die, die

Home, home, 
Home, home, home 
Home, home 
Home, home, home

Miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away 
Miles and miles and miles and miles and miles away 
Where do I go? 
Or where can I hi hi hi hide hi hi hi hide

I'm home home, 
Home home home, 
And I'm home home, 
Home home, home

And I'm miles away 
Miles away 
But I'm miles away
