I sang the melody of this tune over and over and over again when I bicycled across Europe when I was 23 or so. I finished the lyrics in 2011.Copywrite 2011 by Eric A Henning. All rights reserved.

Lyrics

I once knew a man, who'd taken more than he could stand
Seems his job was bad - and the life he had was worse than he'd planned.
He chose to run away, one saltry summer day
To find a girl, or to see the world? before he left all he had to say (was) . .

Chorus
You know I try with all my might
To know what's wrong and to do what's right.
I stay awake alone at night - starin' at the moon.
Life is such a mystery - there's soo much more I want to see
But Home is where I want to be . . and I want to be there soon.

A girl I used to know had gone as far as she could go
Seems she felt held down by some coward clown
When all she really wanted was to love and grow.
She chose to move ahead from the languid life she led
She wanted more so she hit the door . .
And before it hit her back I know she said . . .

Chorus
You know I try with all my might
To know what's wrong and to do what's right.
I stay awake alone at night - starin' at the moon.
Life is such a mystery - there's soo much more I want to see
But Home is where I want to be . . and I want to be there soon.

Wishin' on a star ain't gunna get you very far
if you don't lik what you're doin' and if you don't like who your are
Make a change today . . .and whatever comes-what-may
let's make a solemn vow right here and now
To enjoy our journey along the way

Chorus
And I'll try with all my might
To know what's wrong and to do what's right.
I stay awake alone at night - starin' at the moon.
Life is such a mystery - there's soo much more I want to see
But Home is where I want to be . . and I want to be there soon.
