"I Do Declare" lyrics

I Do Declare

I started walking Sunday
And by Monday I was heading out
Along that freeway line
Round about a quarter to nine
I saw a Caddy heading north
And I was getting tired of walking
So I pulled him over to the side

"Say, man, can you tell me
Where I can find
Just a little peace of mind?
I'm getting tired of city living
And the orders I've been given
And the way I see it is
I could be running out of time"

He said, "Man
I've got just the place
Where you and freedom come face to face
I know just how you feel
This place is unreal
You won't believe it
When you see it
Man, it's far out of space"

I do declare, I want to take you there
I declare, I want to take you where
Where the people live without it
Don't concern themselves about it
Cause they know they've got a reason
And they ain't about to leave it

I declare, I want to take you there
I do declare, I want to take you where
Where the honeysuckle's climbing
And there ain't no sense of timing
And you'll never need reminding
Why you left
And why you came out here

Clare, it was just an hour's drive away
Now listen close to everything I say
We passed through the city limits
And, Clare, what lay within it
Was enough to blow your mind away

So come on
Clare, get the hell out of there
They'll shut you up
And make you tear out your hair
So don't you tell me maybe
Cause you're trying to be a lady
They've got everything we ever dreamed
We'd ever want to share

I do declare, I want to take you there
Clare, I want to take you where
Where the people live without it
Don't concern themselves about it
Cause they know, they've got a reason
And they ain't about to leave it

Clare, I want to take you there
I do declare, I want to take you where
Where the honeysuckle's climbing
And there ain't no sense in timing
And you'll never need reminding
Why you left and why you came out here

I do declare, I want to take you there
I declare, I want to take you there
Clare, I wanna love you
Clare, I wanna make you
Clare, I want to take you there

I do declare, I want to take you there
I declare, I want to take you there
Clare, I wanna love you
Clare, I wanna make you
Clare, I want to take you there

I do declare, I want to take you there
I declare, I want to take you there
Clare
