Does anyone know the proper title of the old folksong commonly referred to as either " Carry me back to East TN" or "Going Home"? If so please email me because I want to get copies of the words for my family reunion. thank you.

GOIN' HOME...
HOW MANY YEARS I'VE LONGED TO SEE THE MOUNTAINS SO HIGH
WATCH THE WILD BIRDS FLY ACROSS THE BLUE SUMMER SKY
FEEL THE LOVE LIGHT SHININ' FROM MY DEAR WOMAN'S EYES
NOW I KNOW I'M REALLY GOIN' HOME

CHORUS (after each verse):

CARRY ME BACK TO EAST TENNESSEE
THOUGH MY BODY IS COLD AS A STONE
LAY ME DOWN EASY UNDER A TREE
WHERE ONLY GOD AND I MAY KNOW

I'LL BE GONE...
A THOUSAND TIMES MORE GLADLY THAN I EVER WAS HERE
TAKING LEAVE OF SENSES AND ALL DOUBTS AND ALL FEARS
PERHAPS YOU'LL FIND IT IN YOU HEART TO SHED A LONESOME TEAR
WHEN YOU CALL MY NAME AND FIND ME GONE

VERSE        1                1

                4                5                1                6m
                4                5                1                6m
