I've got a letter from home today
Mama didn't have a lot to say
Said that papa ain't a feeling too good
Ain't been a eatin' the way he should.

Little brother is still a pest
Little sister is such a mess
Big brother's got a lotta new friends
And big sister fell in love again.

Makes me wanna go home
Where I can feel free to take a walk
And understand people
When they talk.

I got a letter from home
Makes me wanna go home.

--- Instrumental ---

Uncle Bill bought a brand new car
Said it like to be where you are
Aunt Alice got a brand new house
The one whose husband is such a louse.

Your best girl friend she just left town
Some other guy's been a hangin' round.
Someone here that I want you to meet
A new girl that lived across the street

Makes me wanna go home
Where I can feel free to take a walk
And understand people
When they talk.

Oh, I gotta get home. oh, I wanna go home...
