“Home” Lyrics

Lookin’ outta my windowpane
Tears minglin’ with the rain
I’m so lonesome I could cry, just like old Hank
Starin’ down on the city street
Feelin’ empty and incomplete
There’s a place I need to be to fill my tank
A place I can go where I can be free
Where I can be happy and I just be me
Where the warm wind’s blowin’ and the river’s flowin’ along
Like a lazy bum in the midday sun
And I’ve gone fishin’ with my pole at the fishin’ hole
Where I can lay down my heavy load
And know that I am always welcome home
I left home I was seventeen
I had a lot of ambitious dreams
Seen a lot of those dreams come true, I’ve had good luck
I ain’t complain’ that’s for sure
I got a lot to be thankful for
One of those things is a magic door that opens up
Back to the time when I was a kid
To the sounds of crickets and the katydids
It’s called ho-o-ome
On the front porch swingin’
And the fern pots hangin’
With the church bells ringin’
And voices singin’
Those old songs that mend my mind like a stitch in time
Where the tea is sweet and the love complete
Oh me, I wanna go ho-o-ome
I often think about where I have been
Where I am goin’ and that’s about when I think about
Where the soul finds comfort and the heart finds pleasure
Where the depths of love is hard to measure
It’s ho-o-ome
I hear you callin’, I hear you callin’
I’ll never be lost as long as I know
There’s place like that where I can go
Where I can restore my weary soul
On the mountain slopes in the soft blue smoke
Of ho-o-ome
Home sweeet home. Ho-o-ome
Back to the hills with the whippoorwills
Of ho-o-ome
With the fireflies blinkin’ and the night stars winkin’
Honeysuckle vine and Muscadine wine
At ho-o-ome
Where the ginseng grows in the shady groves of ho-o-ome
With family and friends and joy that never ends
There’s no place like it, no place like it
