Lyrics

Home Again

Written By: John R. Carr

(chorus)
Home again, I'm goin' home again,
Back to my kinfolk and my pickin' friends,
Back to the place where I was born and raised,
Yeah, back to those backward country ways.

1. I've been out west for such a long time,
Drivin' those rigs and workin' overtime,
Whiskey and gamblin' took the rent away,
And I been dodgin' landlords every day. (chorus)

2. I met a girl outside of Reno,
She was as fast as any wind blows,
She took my love and got my bankroll,
And then she left me six months in the hole.

(bridge)
A restless kid, I left for Colorado,
Kept movin' west until I got to Reno,
The folks back home all tellin' me I done wrong,
And I think that's why I've been away so long. (chorus)

3. I've had my fill of sleazy ramblers,
Fast scams and back-room cheatin' gamblers,
Livin' where cities never shut down,
That's why I'm goin' back to my home town. (chorus)

(chorus) Home again, I'm goin' home again,
Back to my kinfolk and my pickin' friends,
Back to the place where I was born and raised,
Yeah, back to my backward country ways.

1. I've been out west for such a long time,
Drivin' those rigs and workin' overtime,
Whiskey and gamblin' took the rent away,
And kept me dodgin' landlords every day. (chorus)

2. I met a girl outside of Reno,
She was as fast as any wind blows,
She took my love and got my bankroll,
Then left me here still six months in the hole.

(bridge) A restless kid, I left for Colorado,
Kept movin' west until I got to Reno,
The folks back home kept tellin' me I done wrong,
And I think that's why I've been away so long. (chorus)

3. I've had my fill of sleazy ramblers,
Fast scams and backroom cheatin' gamblers,
Livin' where cities never shut down,
That's why I'm headin' back to my home town. (chorus)
