Lyrics:

Girl, I know the grass is greener, just around the bend.
Gotta say, "Goodbye!" but dont' you fear.
Though the road is dark and I might fail to find the end
I won't disappear.

I'll be back upon my feet. I'll be back upon my feet.
Chase the morning sun to find my one and only you.
I'll be back upon my feet. I'll be back upon my feet.
Lookin' high, I'm lookin' low.
When I find my boots I know I gotta go.

Maybe I will be a star, or maybe just a clown.
Girl, I'll never know until I try.
Maybe I will meet a girl who'll try to keep me down.
But you don't have to cry.

I'll be back upon my feet. I'll be back upon my feet.
Chase the morning sun to find my one and only you.
I'll be back upon my feet. I'll be back upon my feet.
ookin' high, I'm lookin' low.
When I find my boots I know I've gotta go.

[Instrumental]

Maybe I will meet a girl who'll try to keep me down.
But you don't have to cry.

I'll be back upon my feet. I'll be back upon my feet.
Chase the morning sun to find my one and only you.
I'll be back upon my feet. I'll be back upon my feet.
Lookin' high, I'm lookin' low.
When I find my boots I know I've gotta go.
