    Lyrics

    (Roger Miller)

    I been a traveler most of my life
    Never took a home never took a wife
    Ran away young and decided to roam
    I wanna see my mama and my daddy back home.

    Home where the river runs cold
    The water tastes good the winters ain't cold
    Home where the trees grow tall
    The homefires burn the whippoorwills call.

    --- Instrumental ---

    I remember stories that my pappy used to tell
    My eyes'd get big his chest would really swell
    I could sit for hours and a listen with glee
    As he'd tell of how he lived when he's a boy like me.

    Home where the river runs cold
    The water tastes good the winters ain't cold
    Home where the trees grow tall
    The homefires burn the whippoorwills call.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Well mama, dear mma, do you still love your boy
    After all my roamin' can I still bring you joy
    Mom sent a letter got it not long ago
    It said come home I'm a missin' you so.

    Home where the river runs cold
    The water tastes good the winters ain't cold
    Home where the trees grow tall
    The homefires burn the whippoorwills call...
