“Put a candle in the window,

‘Cause I feel I’ve got to move.

Though I’m going, going,

I’ll be coming home soon.

‘Long as I can see the light.


Pack my bag and let’s get moving,

‘Cause I’m bound to drift a while.

When I’m gone, gone,

You don’t have to worry long,

‘Long as I can see the light.


Guess I’ve got that old travelin’ bone

‘Cause this feeling won’t leave alone

But I won’t, won’t

Be losin’ my way

Long as I can see the light.”


~Creedence Clearwater Revival
