Goin' home (goin' home, goin' home)
Goin' home (goin' home, goin' home)
Goin' home, goin' home, I'm a goin' home
Quiet like, still some day, I'm just goin' home
It's not far, just close by, through an open door
Work all done, care laid by
Going to fear no more
Mother's there, expecting me
Father's waiting too (father is waiting too)
Lots of folks gathered there (folks gathered there)
All the friends I knew
Goin' home (goin' home, goin' home, goin' home)
Goin' home

Morning star lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadows gone, break of day
Real life just begun
There's no break, ain't no end
Just a living on (just a living on)
Wide awake with a smile, going on and on
Goin' home, goin' home, I'm a goin' home (goin' home)
It's not far, just close by, I'm a goin' home
Goin' home (goin' home, goin' home, goin' home)
Goin' home

Nothing's lost, all is gain, no longing for the day
No more stumbling on the way
No more fret nor pain
Goin' home, goin' home, I'm a goin' home
Quiet like, still some day, I'm a goin' home
I'm just goin' home
I'm a goin' home
Goin' home (goin' home, goin' home)
Goin' home (goin' home, goin' home)
