Don’t It Make You Want To Go Home

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Joe South:
Don't it make you want to go home now
Don't it make you want to go home
All God's children get weary when they roam
Don't it make you want to go home
Tell me don’t it want to make you go home
Oh, the whippoorwill roosts on the telephone pole
And the Georgia sun goes down
Well, it's been a long time but I'm glad to say that I'm
Goin' back down to my hometown
Going down to the Greyhound station
I’m going to buy me a one-way fare
If the good Lord’s willing and the creeks don’t rise
By tomorrow I’ll be right there
Joe, June Carter, Johnny Cash, George Lindsey:
Don’t it make you want to go home now
Don’t it make you want to go home
All God's children get weary when they roam
Don't it make you want to go home
Johnny: There's a 6 lane highway down by the creek
Where I went skinny dipping as a child
June: And a drive-in meadow where the strawberries grow
And all kinds of things a growing wild
George: There's a drag strip down by the riverside
Where my grandma's cow used to graze
All: Now the grass don't grow and the river don't flow
Like they did in my childhood days
Joe, June, Johnny, George:
And don’t it make you want to go home now
Don’t it make you want to go home
All God's children get weary when they roam
Don't it make you want to go home
Don’t it make you want to go home now
Don’t it make you want to go home
All God's children get weary when they roam
Don't it make you want to go home
Don’t it make you want to go home
Don’t it make you want to go home
