Looking for lyrics to I'm Home Again sung by Bohola on Bits of Bohola. The chorus is something like "...so fill your glasses loving friends, and drink to all the room..."

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Here's a bit of it, that I got by playing the sample at Bohola's web site:

I'm home again, I'm home again,
Nor will I leave it more.
I'll spend my days in love with you,
Dear friends, till life is o'er.

We never love our home so well
Till far from it we roam.
For other lands....


The album, by the way is called "Bits of Bohola (And a Bit)." There is an earlier album called "Bits of Bohola" and a later one called "Bits of Bohola (And a Bit More)."

The tune is very similar to one that I've heard Jean Redpath use for AULD LANG SYNE (not the familiar tune).

I'M HOME AGAIN
As sung by Bohola on "Bits of Bohola (and a Bit)" (2008)

1. I'm home again; I'm home again, nor will I leave it more.
I'll spend my days in love with you, dear friends, till life is o'er.

2. We never loved our home so well till far from it we roam,
For other lands will ne'er bestow the sweets of childhood's home.

3. Then fill your glasses, loving friends, and drink to all who roam,
But ne'er forget to toast the cot you love to call your home.

4. There, mothers kind and fathers dear forestall(?) their lips to pray,
And call down blessings from above to guide us on our way.

5. Then can we ever love a spot beside the silent tomb,
Like the dear one we'll ne'er forget, our childhood's happy home.

6. Then fill your glasses, loving friends, and drink to all who roam,
But ne'er forget to toast the cot you love to call your home.

7. Goodbye to friends I've met abroad, some generous and kind,
But yet they ne'er can compensate for those I left behind.

8. Old Erin's isle I love the best of all 'neath heaven's dome.
Why should I not haste back to it, my childhood's happy home?

9. Then fill your glasses, loving friends, and drink to all who roam,
But ne'er forget to toast the cot you love to call your home.

10. Then fill your glasses, loving friends, and drink to all who roam,
But ne'er forget to toast the cot you love to call your home.

4. Their mothers kind and fathers dear first taught their lips to pray,
And call down blessings from above to guide us on our way.

Also, I'm pretty convinced that in the chorus they say "and drink to all the room". They have pretty thick accents.
