Jamestown Revival – Northbound Lyrics

Northbound Lyrics – Jamestown Revival

They say there’s a Mecca high up in the hills
Where the strings ring out and it gives you chills
Soon as I heard I set my mind to getting there

Texas is a big ol’ state
A full day’s drive it makes you wait
To finally cross that New Mexico line

Santa Fe will set you right
She’ll take you in to stay the night
And leave your head still aching by the morn

Some will say it’s the altitude
And howling at the midnight moon
Either way, it’s time to hit the road

Heading north, it takes a while
You might might as well sit back and smile
Ain’t no way to change the tide
Best sit back, enjoy the ride

Durango runs the narrow gauge
Like a memory from a different age
It feels a bit like stepping back in time

Winding through the open road
That mountain air will lighten your load
As you’re heading towards the San Juan county line

But heading north, it takes a while
You might might as well sit back and smile
Ain’t no way to change the tide
Best sit back, enjoy the ride
Enjoy the ride

My final destination don’t come easy, I’m afraid
But I’ve heard that if it’s good it’s worth the wait

Heading north, it takes a while
You might might as well sit back and smile
Ain’t no way to change the tide
Best sit back, enjoy the ride

To a destination somewhere bound
A mountain road, a little town
Outside of nowhere, riverside
Lean on back, enjoy the ride

‘Cause heading north, it takes a while
You might might as well sit back and smile
Ain’t no way to change the tide
Best sit back, enjoy the ride

Enjoy the ride
Enjoy the ride
Enjoy the ride
