GOING HOME
by Fred Geis

Well no matter where I wander
I know I'll always find a welcome
At the end of every journey
There'll be friendly people waiting.

California could not hold me
Though I loved her timber mountains
I worked her fields and I worked her orchards
Up and down her Central Valley.

I have ridden open boxcars
Through the golden Utah valleys

Art Thieme
I've watched the rivers and seen their gliding
Waved my hand to friendly people.

Those that know me call me a drifter,
But they don't know I'll stop my ramnblin'
They don't know that somewhere, someone is gonna make me
Settle down
I'm going homw, I'm going home...

Well no matter where I wander
I know I'll always find a welcome
At the end of every journey
There'll be friendly people always wating.
