Subject: I'm Going Home Again, Lyrics & Chords

Having got back from Whitby Folk week, I have spent a bit of time on the net, including Mudcat, looking for the lyrics and chords for a number of songs which I noted at the festival. I have found the lyrics for all but the above song, which I am told was written by Allan Taylor.

I have looked through each of his CD's on his site but can not find a song title of that name. Perhaps it is goes under a different title but that line is certainly prominent in the chorus.

Can anyone help? Chords would be a bonus.

Also chords to Come Home Safely To Me would be most appreciated.

This is a bluegrass song, so it might not be the one you want, but—

I'M GOING HOME AGAIN recorded by Longview on their album "High Lonesome" (Rounder, 1999). It was written by Kenny Sloas, Johnny Sloas, and Dave Sloas, who were members of another group called the Sloas Brothers. Here's an excerpt, transcribed from a sound sample:

Left my home back in the mountains
This old world to ramble round.
Now my ramblin' days are over.
[I'll] go home and settle down.

I can hear the whistle blowin'.
Lord, it's comin' round the bend,
Makin' ninety miles an hour....

Also, I've found 2 songs by Allan Taylor that have somewhat similar-sounding titles:

BACK AGAIN, from "The American Album/Cajun Moon" (2 LPs reissued as 1 CD, 2000) and "Colour to the Moon" (2001):

...Well, I couldn't think of what to say. I wished I'd planned ahead.
All the things that burned inside would have to go unsaid.
And you ask if I've been travelling, lately where I've been.
Well, lately I've been nowhere, 'cause I want you back again....

BACK HOME TO YOU, from "Leaving at Dawn":

...I wouldn't know what to say,
And I've got to get back home to you, sweet love.
I've got to get back home to you.

When the music plays(?)....

My dad is/was fiddle playing John Sloas. Kenny and Dave are his brothers and they did write this song!! They're first album they ever recorded bares the same name "I'm Going Home Again". Dad and Uncle Dave have since left the shores of time, but they were a very talented group of boys/men that taught theirselves how to play the old time bluegrass music and they wrote many of their own songs!!
