Subject: Lyr Add: GOIN' HOME (Dvorak/Colyer)
Strangely, though the late Ken Colyer (jazz trumpeter, skiffle lefty guitarist)credits his own song with this title to "Dvorak/Colyer" it certainly isn't the tune used for the spiritual, and I don't recognise it from any other section of the New World.

Goin' Home
(Dvorak/Colyer)

Goin' home
He's goin' home
He'll be leavin' here today
But if he don't leave now
He won't be goin' nowhere

If home is where the heart is
Then my home's in New Orleans
Take me to that land of dreams
Lord and if I don't leave now
I won't be goin' nowhere

Goin' home
He's goin' home (yeah yeah)
He's leavin' here today
Well if you don't leave now
You won't be goin' nowhere

What you say
And what you do
Well it's tight like that
And I'm telling you
Well if I don't leave now
I won't be goin' nowhere (nowhere nowhere)

Well if I don't leave now
I won't be goin' nowhere
Well if I don't leave now
I won't be goin' nowhere

If you want the tune, try the Lonnie Donegan/Van Morrison Skiffle Sessions Live in Belfast CD.
