I couldn't find this in the database - lovely song by Sally Fingerett - the version I have heard is by Mary Travers on "Lifelines". Does anybody have the lyrics and music for this song? Thanks - Reid (Faded Denim)

Daniel O'Donnell sing this one called Home Is Where The Heart Is but it might be a different song altogether. Regards Mick Bracken.


HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

As the raindrops are falling,
I can hear your voice calling,
Calling me back once again.
I've been away for too long,
But now I'm coming home,
Back to your loving arms again.

I miss the countryside so fair,
And the good folk that live there.
I've missed your tender kisses and your smile.
Now I'm not too far away.
I'm coming home today,
And soon my feet will touch my native soil.

CHORUS: And we'll do all the old things that we've always done:
Dancing, romancing, together as one.
Home is where the heart is and my heart's with you.
No matter where I travel, I'm coming home to you.

The taxicab is waiting
As I step down off the plane,
'Cause I won't wait to catch the morning train,
For now I'm returning
Where the home fire's always burning,
To the one I love who's waiting there for me.

CHORUS

Bill, your link doesn't work any more as a link to song lyrics.

I have a song called ""Home Is Where The Heart Is" on a mostly bluegrass CD by Old & In The Way. I'm wondering if this is the one that your link used to take folks to.

Here are the lyrics, as well as I can transcribe them from hearing it. If anyone can fix the errors, please do.

Genie


HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
(Connie Gately)
On Stargate Records in 1961 by Connie & Joe.
On "Breakdown" (recorded live at The Boarding House, San Francisco, 1973) by Old & In The Way (Garcia, Grisman, Kahn, Clements, & Rowan)

Nestled in the pine trees in the mountains,
Down along the road I love so well.
There I know my dear old mother's waiting
Waiting, and I know she always will.

CHORUS: Home Is Where The Heart Is, they tell me.
Many men have tried to travel that lonesome road.
They'll never find a pal as sweet as mother.
They'll never find a place as sweet as home.

Now many years ago I left my old home,
Started out to ramble all around.
If ever I return to where I came from,
I'll build a little home and settle down.

Then there's that little number of the same name "written for OSHO" :

I've travelled a day
I've travelled a year
I've travelled a lifetime to find my way home
Home is where the heart is
Home is where the heart is
Home is where the heart is
My heart is with you.

Builds nicely with simple harmonies.
Perfect for those touchy feely occasions!

Cheers! R-J

this is the song the original poster is looking for:

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
couldnt find the author though...i think they got it from the four bitchin' babes.


On the corner there's this nice man
His name is Mark, He's always smiling
He's got this mom who comes on Wednesdays
In the evening with soup so steaming
He shares his house with his friend Martin
They're not brothers, they're not cousins
My little girl wonders all about these men
I take hold of her hand, and I begin

chorus:
Home is where the heart is
No matter how the heart lives
Inside your heart where love is
That's where you've got to make yourself
At home

Across the yard live Deb and Tricia
With their tools and ladders
And their room addition
My kid yells over, "Are ya having a baby?"
They wink and smile, they say, "Someday maybe."
But through their doors go kids and mommies
Funny how you don't see the daddies go in
My little girl wonders
'Bout this house with no men,
I take hold of her hand
And I begin

chorus

'Round the corner, here comes Martin
He's alone now, he tries smiling
He roams around his well stocked kitchen
He knows that fate will soon be coming
My little girl wonders where he will live
I take hold of her hand and I begin

chorus

Martin sits and waits with his windows open
His house is empty, his heart is broken
We bring him toys and watercolors
He loves to hear my little baby's stories
She's the gift I share
She's his companion
She's the string on the kite
She guides him into the wind
My little girl wonders who will care for him
We take hold of his hand and we begin

[Peter, Paul & Mary recorded this on "Lifelines" (1995).]

......two more steps across the floor
into the arms of the one who loves you
......

Mr Happy :-) The one you're talking about is a Clive Gregson song.


HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
As sung by Clive Gregson and Christine Collister on "Home and Away"

Well, I've been away such a long time now.
My life has changed so much,
And I broke my promise that no matter how,
I would always keep in touch.
I could hear the whisper of the telephone line.
I could hear the trains roll by.
If I could hear the whistle and the engine's whine,
Why can't I hear you cry?

Home is where the heart is.
Guess who's knockin' on your front door!
Is this the friend that you never knew?
Oh, why don't you make sure?
Home is where the heart is:
Three short steps across the floor,
Into the arms of the one who loves you,
And never roam no more, no more.

Well, you tracked me down to a foreign town.
The long distance call came through,
And a voice that I'd not heard for years
Said, "Darling, is that you?"
And a voice of my own said I'll be home
When I can get these wheels to start,
Because it's not my promise that I'll break this time,
But someone else's heart.

And home is where the heart is.
Guess who's knocking on your front door!
Is this the friend that you never knew?
Oh, why don't you make sure?
Home is where the heart is.
Take those steps across the floor
Into the arms of the one of loves you,
To never roam no more,
No, never roam no more, no more.

[Fairport Convention also sing this song on "Jewel in the Crown" (1995).]

MickT,

Cheers for that. That's the one!

A great song, thanks.

re
* I love her still
**all those miles i've travelled that lonesome road
*a gal as sweet as mother
I've sang it this way for years from memory.
I have the lyric printed somewhere that I had translated from Gregg s/h when I heard Connie & Joe do it on shortwave radio long ago... so take it or leave it:)

From: Jim Dixon

Yet another song with the same title:


HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
As sung by the Ink Spots, 1947.

Home is
Where the heart is,
And my heart is
Where my love is,
And my love is anywhere you are,
Be it near or far,
Anywhere you are.

And though
Dreams may tumble,
I'll be grateful;
I'll be humble.
I'll be happy in the years that go by,
For I know I
Have you.

[Spoken:] Home is
Where the heart is, honey,
And my heart
Is just where my love is,
And my love is
Any and everywhere you are,
Be it near or ever so far,
It's anywhere you chance to be.

[Sung:] And though
Dreams may tumble,
I'll be grateful;
I'll be humble.
I'll be happy in the years that go by,
For I know I
Have you.

Date: 27 Sep 13 - 09:11 PM

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS
As sung by Elvis Presley on "I Got Lucky" (1971)

Home is where the heart is,
And my heart is anywhere you are.
Anywhere you are is home.
I don't need a mansion
On a hill that overlooks the sea.
Anywhere you're with me is home.

Maybe I'm a rolling stone
Who won't amount to much,
But everything that I hold dear
Is close enough to touch.

For home is where the heart is,
And my heart is anywhere you are.
Anywhere you are is home,
Home, home, home, home.

[Link Wray also sings this song on "Barbed Wire" (2008).]
