Going Home

This song is by Georgie Fame and appears on the album Going Home (1971).

Caught the nine-o-clock train from Norfolk
In Virginia

Gonna go back
Gonna go back,
Gonna go back
Gonna go back

To see the pretty girl that I left behind
See the dirty clothes on the washing line
See the little tree that I planted there
So many years ago

I'm going home to mama's home cooking
And all you can't replace, you can't replace

Caught the six-o-clock flight from Columbus
In Ohio

Gonna get there
Gonna get there,
Gonna get there
Gonna get there

Gonna get a breath of that country air
I'm gonna go to church
Gonna say my prayers
Listen to the gossip in the village square
Did you hear about Mary May

I'm going home to mama's home cooking
An' all you can't replace, you can't replace

Caught the two-o-clock bus from Lincoln
In Nebraska

I'm gonna make it
I'm gonna make it,
I'm gonna make it
I'm gonna make it

Gonna make up for those bitter years
I never had a chance to dry my tears
I never wanna be in love again
I never wanna feel so cold

No I'm going home to mama's home cooking
And all you can't replace, you can't replace

I'm going home to mama's home cookin',
I'm going home to mama's home cookin',
I'm going home to mama's home cookin',
I'm going home to mama's home cookin',
I'm going home to mama's home cookin'
