Tales From the Homestead

To Be Home Again is the 9th track on Tallsome Tales.

I left my home when I was just seventeen

I knew all there was to know

I packed my bags and drove as far as I could

No one to tell me where to go

Got me a job selling gas and cigarettes

Graveyard shift was all I could find

Married the first gal paid attention to me

No one to tell me I was blind

Oh to be home again

It was heaven to me

It was my sacred ground for years

Been gone so long

Makes it hard to see

Just what that home meant to me

Thirty years of trying to make my ends meet

Creditors been knocking at my door

My wife and kids walked out on me a lifetime ago

Grief and sorrow burns me to the core

I had not seen my folks for all these worn out years

But there was nowhere else I could turn

They took me in with open arms and love to spare

Asking for nothing in return

Oh to be home again

It's heaven to me

I've found my sacred ground right here

It's taken o so long for

Me to see

Just what my home means to me
