Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Going Home Song (Jim James)
Subject: Tune Add: THE GOING HOME SONG
Here's my memory of Ian's version, but I haven't heard it for a long time (and I don't seem to have it anywhere), so it may not be exact. I also can't remember whether the ending I've labelled Last was only for the last chorus or whether it was for all. Perhaps all this can be resolved when the words are posted.
