Ron Shaw – Goin' Home lyrics

Goin' home and seein all the friends and relatives
It's a thing you've been lookin forward to.
It's been a long time since you've been home.
That's a thing you've always planned to do.

Sittin in the airport lounge
You finally let yourself unwind
And then you reach the family on the phone.
It seems like days before they pick you up
But, man, there ain't no feelin like the feelin
When you're goin home.

They don't know what you've been goin through
And you wonder if they care.
They don't understand just why you do the things you go
They even criticize the clothes you wear.

In a couple days the new wears off
And then you get this funny feelin
Way down deep inside you don't belong.
And even though your blood's the same
Your ways of life are miles apart,
But that can't be the reason why it's wrong.

They don't know what you've been goin through,
And they don't really care.
They don't understand just why you do the things you do.
There's jeolousy and envy everywhere.

But goin home will never change
It's all a part of growin old
And the love of it runs deep within the soul.
They wish you wealth and great success
You wish them health and happiness
And think about the times when you'll be goin home.
