Don't it make you want to go home now? Don't it make you want to go home? All God's children get weary when they roam Don't it make you want to go home? Don't it make you want to go home? Oh, the whippoorwill roosts on the telephone pole And the Georgia sun goes down Well, it's been a long time But I'm glad to say that I'm Goin' back down to my home town Goin' down to the Greyhound station Gonna buy me a one-way fare Good Lord's willin' and the creeks don't rise Why, tomorrow I'll be right there Don't it make you want to go home now? Don't it make you want to go home? All God's children get weary when they roam Don't it make you want to go home? Don't it make you want to go home? But there's a six-lane highway down by the creek Where I went skinny-dippin' as a child And a drive-in show where the meadow used to grow And the strawberries used to grow wild There's a drag strip down by the riverside Where my grandma's cow used to graze Now the grass don't grow and the river don't flow Like it did in my childhood days Don't it make you want to go home now? Don't it make you want to go home? All God's children get weary when they roam Don't it make you want to go home? Tell me, don't it make you want to go home? (Echoing and clapping on the first two lines of each group of four lines from here on) Don't it make you want to go home now? Don't it make you want to go home? All God's children get weary when they roam And God, how I want to go home! (yeah) Don't it make you want to go home now? Tell me, better make you wanna go home! All God's children get weary when they roam Now, don't it make you want to go home, I wanna know now! Don't it make you want to go home now? Don't it make you want to go home? All God's children get weary when they roam Don't it make you want to go home? oh! Don't it make you want to go home now? [FADE]
