Don't it make you wanna go home now don't it make you wanna go home
All of God's children get weary when they roam
Don't it make you wanna go home don't it make you wanna go home
Oh the whippoorwills roost on the telephone poles the Georgia sun goes down
It's been a long time but I'm glad to say that I'm
Goin' back down to my hometown
Goin' down to the greyhound station gonna buy me a oneway fare
If the good Lord's willin' and the creeks don't rise tomorrow I will be right there
Don't it make you wanna go home now...
[ guitar ]
There's a six lane highway down by the creek where I went skinny dippin' as a child
And the driving show where the meadow used to grow
And the strawberries used to grow wild
There's a drugstrip down by the riverside where my grandma's cow used to grace
Now the grass don't grow and the river don't flow like it did in my childhood days
Don't it make you wanna go home now...
Don't it make you wanna go home now...
Don't it make you wanna go home now...
