Right. Found it.

GOING HOME SONG

Jim James

1. In the night sky you can hear the geese cry
Ch: And it's time for the going home song
    The gull on the shore sailing homeward once more
Ch: And it's time for the going home song

Full chorus
Travellers the wide world all over
May your star follow you through the night
With the storm clouds at bay
At the end of the day
Then it's time for the going home -
Time we were getting home -
Time for the going home song.

2. The fox on the dunes looking out for the moon
    The shepherd and dogs wend their way with their flocks

3. There'll be peace once again over valley and plain
    When the mist from the sea spins its own mystery

So there y'go.

He also wrote one called Formby Bypass Blues about a local road of that name (A565)
