SAVE ME A SEAT   
©1993 Sally Fingerett, Green Fingers Music, BMI

She’s standing in a hard rain waiting for the bus, homeward bound
There with her umbrella she’s had enough, homeward bound                      
She’s ready for the journey in her heart of hearts, homeward bound
Once those doors swing open they let the healing start, homeward bound 

Get you a place by the window, grab the isle for me
Someday when it’s my turn, look around you and there I’ll be
You better save me a seat, oh, save me a seat

You don’t need to transfer on the freedom bus, because it’s one way bound
You don’t need a token if in god you trust, homeward bound                     
Lay down your weary burden travel as you please, homeward bound                     
The tired and the weary find comfort in release, homeward bound                         
Get you a place by the window, grab the isle for me
Someday when it’s my turn, look around you and there I’ll be
You better save me a seat, oh, save me a seat

They don’t laugh at white girls who love their R & B, homeward bound  
You’ll be dancing by the river let your soul run free, homeward bound       
Oh, she’s ready to get ready - she’s got everything in a line, homeward bound
You gave the gift of courage go on girl it’s time, homeward bound                        
Get you a place by the window, grab the isle for me
Someday when it’s my turn, look around you and there I’ll be
You better save me a seat, oh, save me a seat

She’s standing in a hard rain, waiting for the bus, homeward bound
Closing her umbrella, she hands it back to us, homeward bound                  

Wave goodbye at your window, put up your big old feet    
Someday when it’s my turn, look around you and there I’ll be
You better save me a seat, oh, save me a seat
