Lyrics: I used to walk, I used to wander down these roads
searching for a place that I could call my home
but I never seemed to find anywhere I didn't leave behind
I packed my things, followed the wind
adding distance to the places I had been
the air was warm but I was cold within

I walked for miles until I came across a southern bell who lead me to a town
where people hung around for their whole life
it was the perfect place but somehow I just didn't feel at home
so I left before the sun came up at dawn
but it was cold so I caught a cab, when I told him to go anywhere he laughed
then what he said I'll never forget

He said "Son you've got to understand, happiness has never been
a place that you could go, it's the people that you know
I could take you further East or West but I don't think you'll rest until you go
back to the ones who truly make a place a home"

Take me home, that's where I wanna go, so take me home, yes sir I wanna go home

I realize taking this walk down memory lane
the best advice I ever got was on that day
I owe my life and everything to a stranger, I don't even know his name…

About the Artist
Jamestown Story Jamestown Story

These days, you don't find many independent artists capable of making a living off their music; Dane Schmidt however, has done so successfully for the last seven years, without the help of a record label. When you dig deeper into the Jamestown Story, it becomes very apparent why.

The Jamestown Story began in 2003 and since that time has independently sold over 250k songs on iTunes, 25k albums, toured 35 US states, played 350+ shows including tours in Canada & Japan, and has had over 75 TV placements on shows such as Dr. Phil, Jersey Shore, Snooki & JWoww, The Challenge Rivals 2, Teen Mom 2, One Tree Hill, The Real World, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

With an undeniable work ethic and the ability to adjust and change to the always shifting music industry, you can be confident that the Jamestown Story will be continuing to add more chapters to its tale for awhile.
