Subject: Lyr Add: GOING HOME (David Davis)
Man this thing has been around a while ...

I rewrote the lyrics and used it in two funerals, that of a good friend and at my fathers funeral. (Lost it on the last line). Tried to do Whispering Hope for my mom's service, but could only remember the Prarie Home Companion words.

Going Home
rewrite by David Davis
Original lyrics, many sources and ..
The Mudcat Cafe

Goin home
Goin home
Yes I'm goin home
Quiet like
Some still day
Yes, I'm goin home

It's not far
Jess close by
Through an open door
Work all done
Care laid by
Gonna search no more

Momma's there
Spectin me
Poppa's waitin too
Lots o folk
Gathered there
Friends that I once knew

Nothing lost
All is gain
No more work or pain
No more stumblin on the way
Or longin for the day

Mornin star
Lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadow gone
Break o day
Goin on and on
Ohhhhhh

Goin home
Goin home
Yes, I'm goin home
Quiet like
Some still day
Yes, I'm goin home
Yes, I'm goin home
Goin home
