    Lyrics

    (Joe South)

    Don't it make you wanna 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 wanna go home
    Don't it make you wanna go home.

    Oh, the whippoorwill roost on the telephone pole
    When the Georgia sun goes down
    Well it's been a long time but I'm glad to say that I'm
    Goin' back down to my hometown
    Goin' down to the greyhound station
    Gonna buy me a oneway fare
    Good Lord's willin' and the creeks don't rise
    Watch it for I'll be right there.

    Don't it make you wanna 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 wanna go home
    Don't it make you wanna 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 meadow used to grow
    And the strawberries used to grow wild
    There's a drugstrip 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 now
    Don't it make you wanna go home
    All God's children get weary when they roam
    Don't it make you wanna go home
    Don't it make you wanna go home.

    Don't it make you wanna 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 wanna go home
    Don't it make you wanna go home...
