  1. My Home Now

Lyrics

It was a rainy day on Shilshole Bay, I was working at The Boathouse
Singing folksongs there 
That's when I got my call to start a bakery on the back roads of Oregon 
Near Portland town
 
It was my Silver City ...it was rainy and windy 
It was foggy and cold on Puget Sound 
You get used to the weather and the summers are awesome 
And you can still plant dahlias...they grow like the weeds
 
Portland changed my life y’know, I bought a house in Rivergrove
And I started up that bakery by the sweat of my brow
And tho I longed for those Seattle days where Griffey and Martinez played 
I said I've got two kids and bills to pay ...this is my home now
 
I could feel the chill on Queen Anne hill when we used to visit Susan there
Above the bay
It was "81" and we sure had fun, rooting for the Seahawks... in the old Kingdome
 
The sky was claimed by Boeing planes, I could see them through the windshield
Of my old Vee Dub
And I drove that car, near and far
And finally down the 5 to Portlandia
 
Portland changed my life for good and that was 30 years ago
But I still miss Seattle from time to time
My children landed 'neath the skies where coffee's prized and Jimi lies
But me, I come from Portland, this is my home now
