Lyrics

How often in your life are you standing so magnificently
Exactly in the time and place, precisely where you want to be
Three sixty degrees all around, mountains effortlessly hold back
All of life’s distractions, the clouds they rise like smoke stacks

There’s no place in this world, I’d rather be
There’s nothing more tempting, that I’d rather see
There’s nowhere in the world more perfect for me than

North Adams, there’s no place I’d rather be than
North Adams, surrounded country pristine
North Adams, I think I’ll catch some TV and then Wil-
Co co co co co co co co come with me

Standing there I’m not alone, eight thousand like me on the tow
Rick, Jed and Mat share me some puff, buy them some Pils hope that’s enough
Pilgrimage is best to share, brothers, sisters everywhere
Darkened stage now lights up our, senses surely to erupt

There’s no place in this world, I’d rather be
There’s nothing more tempting that I’d rather see
Being there’s just perfect for me, that’s right
Being there, oh play it for me in

North Adams, no place I’d rather be than
North Adams, surrounded country pristine
North Adams, I think I’ll catch some TV and then Wil-
Co co co co co co co co come with me

Met Leigh at a local bar, told me he was a trumpeter
Wants to win a grammy for spoken word, Hil almost did, hey how absurd
Folk rock says is not his thing, but thankfully this weekend brings
Hope to this once great town, that industry let down

There’s no place in this world, I’d rather be
There’s nothing more tempting that I’d rather see
There’s nowhere in the world more perfect right now than

North Adams, no place I’d rather be than
North Adams, surrounded country pristine
North Adams, I think I’ll catch some TV and then Wil-
Co co co co co co co co come with me to
North Adams, Mass Moca Museum in
North Adams, oh it sounds solid to me
North Adams, pilgrimage is complete to
North Adams

Being there’s just perfect for me
Being there’s just perfect for me
Being there’s just perfect for me
Being there……..
