This is not a religious thread. Rather, I'm looking for songs that bemoan the leaving of home or relate a return to the home,be it a place or a country.For openers, two of my favourites are old but, to me, enduring:

          When It's Lamp Lighting Time In The Valley
The Old Home Place

Are you looking specifically for country songs? If so, there's shedloads, most of which I can't bring to mind at the moment. (typical). However, Sweet Sunny South appears to fit the bill, as does Blue Ridge Mountain Blues.

I shall return when memory permits.

Fred McCormick: no, not specifically country songs but those are two great choices.You may have gathered that I grew up on country and bluegrass music but I like almost all folk and blues now.

In that case there's any number of Irish emigrant songs. If you can locate a copy, there's a massive collection called Irish Emigrant Ballads and Songs by Robert Wright. Mine is not to hand at the moment, but I do recall it was published by Bowling Green Press, 1970s (I think).

The Miner's Dream of Home? Most of these nostalgic songs are often Music Hall in origin, or written in the mid-19th century to appeal to the immigrant (see most of the so-called "Oirish" songs, like "Mother Machree", or "Tipperary". Still usually great fun to sing though!

One from Yorkshire:

http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/alcuin/versus.shtml

There's a translation in Helen Waddell's book of mediaeval Latin verse. A snippet is translated on the web but gives completely the wrong idea.

I don't know of any musical setting of this and I can't imagine why not.
