(Lou Dalgleish)

I was travelling through the West
I was way beyond my best
But there was beauty everywhere
We were driving through the night
I held my husband’s hand so tight
And our little girl was sleeping all the way

I was Eugene, Eugene bound
Through the blue screen, it’s you that I found
I was searching for a place
But, then I turned about face
In two days I was gone
Thank you, Eugene, Oregon

We were heading for the shore
She’d never been there, not once before
But she was dreaming all the time
As we were playing on the sand
She was praying we’d understand
That is was Eugene on her mind

I was Eugene, Eugene bound
Like a true dream, it’s you that I found

She was searching for a place
But, then she turned out two faced
In two days she was gone
Thank you, Eugene, Oregon

I was Eugene, Eugene bound
Like a movie scene, it’s you that I’ve found

As the eagles caught my eye
I was wishing I could fly
Back to Eugene, you and I
Where you helped me save face
How I longed for that place

In two days she was gone
Thank you, Eugene, Oregon

Thank you, Eugene, Oregon
