HOME TO JAZZ Sung by Mary Cole
Lyrics
HOME TO JAZZ
Lyrics by Mary Cole. Music by Mary Cole and Greg Garrett.


I crossed the wild Atlantic
- O, so many years ago -
With bag full of nothing
And guitar full of dreams.

I was looking for love,
For a friend along life's road.
A few dollars in my pocket
- My heart full of gold -.

Instead, I found green forest,
Lakes and snow up to my sill.
Endless blue,
Endless white
- The hugest daffodils -.

Well, who'd have thought strange country lanes
Would lead me to your door?
You found me.
- I had lost my way -,
Now I'm HOME TO JAZZ once more.

You brought me
HOME TO JAZZ,
HOME TO JAZZ.
My shoes parked on your floor.
My fingers feeling harmony,
I'm HOME TO JAZZ once more.

Saxophone Instrumental

You brought me
HOME TO JAZZ,
HOME TO JAZZ.
My shoes parked on your floor.
My fingers feeling harmony,
I'm HOME TO JAZZ once more.

(Rpt Well, who'd have thought strange country lanes...,
then Chorus and out. )
