This is the first song i sung at the session at the vaults.

                      Going Home.
            
                     Music and lyrics Duncan Whittaker.
            
       I'm going down the road I've done my time,
       I'm going home, going home.
       I'm weary and i'm tired and I'm all up and fired,
       To go on home, go on home.
       My life's been long and hard and I've walked that final yard,
       I'm going home, going home.
       Please don't you say you want me to stay,
       I'm going home, going home.
       Many years have i travelled this long and dusty road,
       I'm going home, going home.
       You stayed by my side with your hand you did guide,
       I'm going home,going home.
       With the setting of the sun means that my time has come,
       To go on home, go on home.
       As you lay me down to die in this place i must lie,
       I've come on home, come on home.

After sining this, Matt looked at me and said "Thank you for that Duncan, now you have thougherly depressed us sing something a little happier".
Cheers Matt.
