GO ON HOME BOY

Brite Tempo

Windmill turning in the summer breeze
Go on home boy
Front gate squeaking and she needs some grease
Go on home boy
Mama is washing the supper dishes
Daddy's out back cleaning some fishes
Go on home boy, go on home

The road is dusty and it needs some rain
Go on home boy
Barns are rusty and they need some paint
Go on home boy
Old Shep's waitin' at the front yard gate
Yelpin' and a-barkin' he can hardly wait
Go on home boy, go on home

Big size cities done and had their day
I'm gettin' homesick, I'm on my way
When I get back I'll never roam
Ain't no place like home sweet home

Shirly's* waitin' by the wellhouse path
Go on home boy
Warm lips waitin' to welcome me back
Go on home boy
There'll be a weddin' just as soon as I'm home
Then I'll never, ever be alone
Go on home boy, go on home
