about

This is a very special song for me and Katie. I wrote the chorus while we were still living in Ohio, but after we secured a new apartment in Blacksburg: 950 Nellies Cave Road. Whenever we got nervous about the move, I would sing the chorus to her, and it made us feel better. Seriously, it's a cure-all.

Katie even joins in at the end!

lyrics

When I heard
We were bound for Blacksburg
I couldn't help but curse
And I did not want to go

Leave my friends
And my job with benefits
Plus I must admit
I just didn't want to leave Ohio

But who cares?
Cuz there's no life without you there
At least not one that I could bear
So I'll pack my things and on the drive there I will sing...

I can't wait to get back home
To my girl where I belong
And we'll make
950 Nellies Cave our own

Well we had a couple nasty fights
A couple sleepless nights
But we made it through all that
Made some plans
And met a few new friends
Even a Cleveland Browns fan!
And no matter what the future brings
We'll be together and we'll sing

I can't wait to get back home
To my girl where I belong
And we'll make
950 Nellies Cave our own

Burrow - an underground home a mammal lives in to protect itself from harsh weather - signifies the time I spent recording in my apartment waiting for the winter darkness to subside. ... more
