I don't have the lyrics, but if it helps any the song was written by Joe South and I believe the title is "Don't It Make You Want To Go Home."

TonyK: don't know if this is the one you are looking for or not, but if you go to the link above, you can find "Busted" by Ray Charles.

Subject: Lyr Add: BUSTED (Harlan Howard, from Johnny Cash)
From: gargoyle
Date: 04 May 99 - 10:05 AM

How about: BUSTED by Harlan Howard?

Nice, simple rolling C-G7-F 6/8 song with a slight skip/kick at the end of the phrases.

BUSTED
Words and music by Harlan Howard
As recorded by Johnny Cash on "Blood, Sweat and Tears" (1963)

My bills are all due and the babies need shoes, but I'm busted.
Cotton is down to a quarter a pound and I'm busted.
I got a cow that went dry and a hen that won't lay,
A big stack of bills that get bigger each day.
The county will haul my belongin's away; I'm busted.

I went to my brother to ask for a loan; I was busted.
I hate to beg like a dog for a bone, but I'm busted.
My brother said: "There ain't a thing I can do.
My wife and my kids are all down with the flu,
And I was just thinkin' of callin' on you; I'm busted."

Lord, I'm no thief, but a man can go wrong when he's busted,
The food that we canned last summer is gone, and'I'm busted.
The fields are all bare and the cotton won't grow.
Me and my fam'ly gotta pack up an' go
Where I'll make a livin' the Lord only knows, but I'm busted.

Joe South came out with a song about a Georgia boy heading home after a prolonged absence, only to find that everything has changed. Don't it make you want to go home, Don't it make you want to go home? All God's children get weary when they roam. Don't it make you want to go home? I heard it very shortly after I had landed in Viet-Nam. Anybody out there have the words & chords?

Copied from Lyrics World

DON'T IT MAKE YOU WANT TO GO HOME
(Joe South)

Oh, the whippoorwill roosts on the telephone pole
And the Georgia sun goes down
Well, it's been a long, long time but I'm glad that I'm
Goin' back to my home town

Goin' down to the Greyhound station
Gonna buy me a one-way fare
And if the good Lord's willin' and the creeks don't rise
By tomorrow, ah, I'm gonna be there

Don't it make you want to go home?
Don't it make you want to go home?
All God's children get weary when they roam
Don't it make you want to go home?

There's a six-lane highway down by the creek
Where I went skinny-dippin' as a child
And a drive-in show where the meadows used to grow
And the strawberries used to grow wild

There's a drag strip down by the riverside
Where my grandma's cow used to graze
Now the grass don't grow and the river don't flow
Like it did in my childhood days

(Don't it make you wanna go home?)
(Don't it make you wanna go home?)
All God's children get weary when they roam
(Don't it make you) wanna, wanna go home?



- Artist: Brook Benton as sung on "The Satin Sound Brook Benton"
- Suffolk Marketing-SMI 2
- peak Billboard position # 45 in 1970
- Words and Music by Joe South

What is the point here? Lyrics like this make me want to throw up, what garbage. Do you listen to Dr. Laura? Were you breast-fed? (honestly) I was asked that by some shameless Guest to the Mudcat site only maoments ago. Can we differ here?

Whippoorwill roosts on the telephone pole as the Georgia sun goes down.
Though it's been a long time, I'm glad to say I'm goin' back to my hometown.
I'm going down to the Greyhound station gonna buy me a one-way fare
If the good Lord's willin' and the creeks don't rise, tomorrow morning, I'll be there.

CHORUS: Don't it make you want to go home now? Don't it make you wanna go home?
All God's children get weary when they roam. Don't it make you want to go home?

There's a drag-strip down by the creek where I used to skinny dip as a child
And a four-lane down by the meadow where the strawberries used to grow wild.
There's a drive-in down by the riverside where my grandma's cow used to graze,
And the grass don't grow and the river don't flow like it used to in my childhood days.

rpt.

Chords are simple G Am D an easy song but can be played with a lotta feeling. Too bad someone else doesn't like or understand where Joe South was coming from. He's probably masturbating on his old KISS albums and sniffing solvents and he probably can't sing or play worth a shit anyway.
Cheers
Whiskey Mike

Thanks, Whiskey Mike. I agree with you about the previous opinion. He's welcome to his, but I think his opinion is as worthless a tits on a boar hog. Jim
