Lyrics

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 that I'm Going back to my home town Going down to the Greyhound station Gonna buy me a one-way fare And if the good Lord's willing And the creeks don't rise By tomorrow, I'm gonna be there

Don't it make you want to go home 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 There's a six-lane highway Down by the creek Where I went skinny dipping As a child And a drive-in show where The meadows 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 wanna go home Don't it make you wanna go home All God's children Get weary when they roam Lord, I wanna go home (It's different, it's different , it's different So different now).... (It's different) Don't it make you wanna go home (It's different) Don't it make you wanna go home (It's different) Don't it make you wanna go home (So different now) But all God's children (It's different) Get weary when they roam (It's different) Don't it make you wanna go home (So different now) Don't it make you wanna go home Don't it make you wanna go home Don't it make you wanna go home Don't it make you wanna go home All of God's children Get weary when they roam Man, I'm going home Don't it make you wanna go home Don't it make you wanna go home Don't it make you wanna go home
