Lyrics: ‘Going to My Hometown’

Mama’s in the kitchen baking up a pie
Daddy’s in the backyard, “Get a job, son,
You know you ought to try”
I packed up my bag, I headed way from home,
I got me a job from Henry Ford
But I made a mistake, I moved much too far
And now I know what the lonesome blues are . . .
I`m getting lonesome, I’m getting blue,
I need someone to talk to
I`m getting lonesome, I’m getting blue,
Let me tell you where I’m going to . . . yeah

Yes I’m going to my home town,
I don’t care ever even if I have to walk.
Yes I’m going to my home town,
I don’t care even if I have to walk.
I gotta leave you now baby, I got no more time left to talk.

Yes I’m going to my home town,
Sorry baby but I can’t take you
Yes I’m going to my home town,
Sorry baby but I can’t take you.
I only got one ticket, you know I just can’t afford two

Woooh… Woooh… Yeah… Woooh… Woooh…

Yeah

You know the day I left,
All the rain was pouring down
Yes, the day I left,
You know the rain was pouring down
But now I’m going home again,
I believe the sun’s gonna come on up
Let’s go home, yes

Yes I’m going to my home town,
Sorry baby but I can’t take you.
Yes I’m going to my home town,
Sorry baby but I can’t take you
I love you, woman
But I got to go home to do a thing or two
See baby
Bye bye
