Goin’ Home

Goin’ home, goin’ home,

I’m just goin’ home,

Quiet like some still day,

I’m just goin’ home.

It’s not far, just close by,

Through an open door.

My work’s all done, cares laid by,

Goin’ to fear no more.

Mother’s there ‘spectin’ me,

And father’s waitin’ too,

Lots of folk are gathered there,

With the friends I knew.

With the friends I knew.

Home, home, I’m goin’ home.

Nothin’s lost, all’s gain.

No more fret or pain,

No more stumbling on the way,

And no more longin’ for the day,

Goin’ to roam no more.

Mornin’ star lights the way,

Restless dreams all done,

Shadow’s gone, break of day,

Real life’s just begun.

There’s no break, ain’t no end,

Just a-livin’ on,

I’m wide awake with a smile,

Goin’ on and on.

Goin’ home, goin’ home,

I’m just goin’ home,

It’s not far, just close by,

Through an open door,

I’m just goin’ home.

Goin’ home.
