Take Me Home

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Johnny Cash:
Well, I've been from Boston to LA, seen Boulder Dam and Frisco Bay
I seen New York City and Washington
Seen Montreal and Saskatchewan and Rhode Island
And I've worked in three all night service stations and I drove a truck

Johnny and Carter Sisters:
Take me home, my heart is heavy and my feet are sore
Take me home, I don't want to roam no more

Johnny:
Well, I slept all night in a water trough
Had the flu and the croup and the whooping cough
Had the mumps and the measles and the seven year itch
And I can't count the times that I've had a cold and a sore throat
Not to mention all the times that I cut my fingers on a sardine can

Johnny and Carter Sisters:
Take me home, my heart is heavy and my feet are sore
Take me home, I don't want to roam no more

Johnny:
Well, I can just see them all now just a gathering round
Mama's supper table when the sun goes down
And my good old pappy when the blessing is said
Filling up his plate with black eyed peas and all that stuff and side meat
And a great big hunk of my dear, sweet mama's hot buttered cornbread

Johnny and Carter Sisters:
Take me home, my heart is heavy and my feet are sore
Take me home, I don't want to roam no more
Take me home, my heart is heavy and my feet are sore
Take me home, I don't want to roam no more
