Subject: this world is not my home
From: GUEST,Hunter
Date: 20 Nov 00 - 07:56 AM

Hi,
In James Ages book "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men", he quotes a song
"This world is not my home, I'm, only passing through,
My treasures and my hopes, are, all, beyond the sky,
I've many, friends, and kindreds, that's gone, along before,
And I can't, feel, at home, in this world, any, more."
I haven't been able to find quite this same version anywhere on the internet, anybody know the rest of the verses?
Thanks

The song was the base for Woody's "I Ain't Got No Home" and the Carter Family version is in the DT under the title "I Can't Feel At Home In This World Anymore." That's probably not much help, but check it out and we'll keep looking.

Here's the version I grew up singing in a little country church.

THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME

This world is not my home, I'm just a-passing through
My treasures are laid up, Somewhere beyond the blue
The angels beckon me from Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world any more

CHORUS:
O Lord, you know, I have no friend like you
If Heaven's not my home, then Lord what will I do?
The angels beckon me from Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world any more.

They're all expecting me, and that's one thing I know;
My Savior pardoned me and now I onward go
I know he'll take me through, though I am weak and poor
And I can't feel at home in this world any more.

I have a loving mother up in Gloryland.
I don't expect to stop until I shake her hand.
She's waiting now for me in Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore.

Just up in Gloryland we'll live eternally,
The saints on every hand are shouting victory;
Their song of sweetest praise drifts back from Heaven's door
And I can't feel at home in this world any more.

From all the meta-reading I've done, the folks who always CLAIM to have had the BIG record of this were The Morris Brothers...with Wade Mainer. 'Course they also claim to have WRITTEN Salty Dog Blues as well...and they get VERY mad when it's pointed out that the song was much older than them.

Charles Wolfe says the Monroes learned the song from the 1935 'hit' record by the Prairie Ramblers on ARC, but the song had its roots deep in the black gospel tradition. In his liner notes to vol 5 of the Rounder set of Carter RCA material, Wolfe said it had been recorded before the Carter's 1931 recording by several black gospel groups - unfortunately, he doesn't say which - and 'had appeared in a number of white gospel songbooks as "arranged" by one composer or another'.

Well thanks, I had no idea it had been recorded so often, though I knew " I ain't got no home". The book was written around '36, so he could have gotten it from some of the recordings mentioned. He does talk about Mitchell's Christian singers, maybe they did it? He could have heard it in some church in Alabama, where he was. Also, he might not have quoted it correctly.

I found This World Is Not My Home in three books, all crediting the arrangement to Albert E. Brumley. The oldest of the three books was only from 1939 though.

From: Burke
Date: 09 Apr 03 - 06:21 PM

I found the version Nathan posted as no.1 in "Favorite Songs and Hymns" with a copyright date of 1937, Arr. by Albert E. Brumley. I guess the question is, what was he arranging? Did he learn it from the recordings, or some other way? The Carter Family recording was 1931.

"Heavenly Highway Hymns" has a different version that says Arr. for the words and music J.R. Baxter, Jr. copyright 1946 in "Sentimental Songs". The tunes are about the same, with the Brumley being more like what I know. The chorus has a couple of small word changes: you-me; will-can. The 1st & 3rd verses are about the same. The 4th seems similar but is considerably reworked. The 2nd seems new. I like the way all the verses end with "heaven's open door." I'd also rather clasp than shake Mother's hand. I guess Baxter could be responsible reworking the words, or maybe there's an Ur text out there still to be found. The music is not changed enough for Baxter to claim anything more than arranging credit.

Here's Baxter's version:

THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME
(I'M JUST A PASSING THRU)

Arr.
J.R. Baxter Jr. c1946

This world is not my home, I'm just a-passing thru,
My treasures are laid up, Somewhere beyond the blue;
The angels beckon me from Heaven's open door,
And I can't feel at home in this world any more.

CHORUS:
O Lord, I know, I have no friend like you,
If heaven's not my home, O Lord what can I do?
The angels beckon me from heaven's open door,
And I can't feel at home in this world any more.

My Savior pardoned me from guilt and shame I know,
I'll trust His saving grace while trav'ling here below;
I know he'll welcome me at heaven's open door,
And I can't feel at home in this world any more.

I have a precious mother up in glory land,
I don't expect to stop until I clasp her hand;
For me she's now in heaven's open door,
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore.

The saints in gloryland are shouting victory,
I want to join their band and live eternally;
I hear the sweetest praise from heaven's open door,
And I can't feel at home in this world any more.

According to the The Online Discographical Project "This world is not my home" was recording
OKEH 8546 by Jesse May Hill 12/17/27. This series is subtitled: Race series.

With this information, I've found it was reissued by Document (DOCD-5190) in 1993. Gospel classics (1927-1931): complete recorded works of Jessie May Hill, Laura Henton, Blind Willie Davis, Louisville Sanctified Singers & unknowns. Anyone have it?

In searching on Google, I've also found lots of variant words as well. The version at Carter Family Songs, in particular, is not the same as that in DT.

There're two black gospel recordings of "This World Is Not My Home" before World War II listed in Blues and Gospel Records 1890-1943 (Oxford): Golden Echo Quartet (rec. Atlanta, Ga; 1 April, 1927) and Jessie May Hill (rec. Chicago; 5 May, 1927). Hill's version (backed by Sisters of Congregation ("The Church of God in Christ") and probably accompanied by Arizona Dranes on the piano) is a variant.

Meade et alia 'Country Music Sources' give it under the generic title 'I Can't Feel At Home' #95, at p 602. They do not normally list black artists (except within their reference notes), but the first listing in this case is Stovepipe No 1 (Sam Jones) 'Lord Don't You Know, I Have No Friend Like You' recorded 19 August 1924 in NYC and issued as Co 210-D in November 1924. This is followed by The Kentucky Thorobreds 'This World Is Not My Home' recorded in April 1927 in Chicago and issued as Paramount 3014 (no date given), and then the Carters' 1931 recording. J.E. Mainer's Mountainers, with vocal by Zeke Morris, recorded it on 6 August 1935 in Atlanta, issued as Bluebird B60288 - several months before the Monroe Brothers 17 February 1936 recording (Bluebird B6309).

How intriguing to listen to those short bits! I don't think a single one had angles at the open door. I could'nt quite tell, but I think at least one was 'loved ones beckon me.' What I could hear of the verses seemed completely different.

Most did not have much of the verses, but what I could catch of Jesse May Hill's was:
[omitted line]
I like talk about him, and I love thy holy way,
I'm expecting to make my home on heaven's happy shore,
I just can't feel at home in this world anymore.

The chorus is much the same, but the next to last line is:
[unclear] beckons me from heaven's welcome door...

The Two Gospel Keys recording mentioned in one of the old messages is later, but sounds much more like these other 3, than the hymnal versions.

It's on Document DOCD-5221 Country gospel: great postwar recordings 1946-1953 : the complete recorded works of the Two Gospel Keys and Sister O.M. Terrell in chronological order. You can hear a bit HERE (there are 2 takes)

I can't find any samples of the Kentucky Thorobreds' version.

I'd agree with Joe that this appears to be an older and completely different hymn. But for completeness, here it is:

THIS WORLD IS NOT MY HOME

REFRAIN
This world is not my home.
This world is not my home.
This world's a howling wilderness.
This world is not my home.

Did Christ o'er sinners weep?
And shall our cheeks be dry?
Let floods of penitential grief
Burst forth from every eye.

The Son of God in tears
The wondering angels see.
Be thou astonished, O my soul,
He shed those drops for thee.

I CAN'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE (from DT)

This world is not my home, I'm just a-passing through
My treasures and my hopes are all beyond the blue;
Where many Christian children have gone on before,
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore.

cho: Oh Lord, You know I have no friend but you
If Heaven's not my home, Oh Lord what would I do?
Angels have taken me to Heaven's open door
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore.

Over in glory land there is no dying there
The saints are shouting Vict'ry and singing everywhere.
I hear the voice of Nell that I have heard before
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore.

My pleasure and my hopes done passed beyond the view,
Many friends and kindred have gone on before,
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore.

If Heaven’s not my home,
O Lord, what will I do?
Angels beckons me to heaven's open door,
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore.

I've got a loving mother over in the glory land.
I never expect to stop until I grab her hand.
She has gone to live and rest forevermore,
And I can't feel at home in this world anymore.

Heaven's expecting me, that's one thing I know.
I fixed it up with Jesus a long time ago.
He will aid me through, though I'm weak and poor,
