I've Never Been to Me Lyrics

I've Never Been to Me - Howard Keel

 

Hey Mister hey Mister I just want a dime

 

'Cause I need a cup of coffee

 

And a moment of your time

 

I can see you're raisin' hell the way I used to do

 

But I wish someone had a talked to me

 

Like I wanna talk to you

 

Oh been to Georgia California

 

Any place I could run

 

Stole a woman in tennessee

 

And we made love in the sun

 

But I ran out of places with friendly faces

 

Because I had to be free

 

I've been to paradise but I've never been to me

 

Thank you Mister thank you kindly

 

Please don't walk away

 

'Cause I have this need to tell you

 

Why I'm all alone today

 

I can see so much of me

 

Still livin' in your eyes

 

Won't you share a part of an old man's heart

 

On the day before he dies

 

Oh I've been to China and Asia minor

 

On any ship that could sail

 

Made some noise with some good old boys

And we wrecked the county jail

 

I've seen the best men crawl and some tear drops fall

There ain't nothing I didn't see

 

I've been to paradise but I've never been to me

 

I've even been to marriage

Had children cryin' for someone they couldn't find

 

Never knowin' that I was searching

For things I left behind

 

I thought my heart could wait

But I learned too late

 

Only love can make people free

 

I've been to paradise

 

But I've never been to me

 

I've been to paradise

 

But I've never been to me

 

I've been to paradise

 

But I've never been to me

 

 

I've been to paradise
