Story

Maybe you can’t go home, but you can never forget. This was my Dad’s favorite of the songs I wrote. We both put a few miles behind us before we settled down. Glad to have Roger Ferguson helping us out on mandolin. 

Lyrics

Going Home isn't easy, no matter how you try;

It's sure a lot of changes are bound to catch your eye.

I found myself in trouble and I found myself alone,

But looking back I always knew I could have had a home.

 

I was just eighteen when I struck off on my own.

I took off like a bandit half afraid and all alone.

It didn't seem to matter just where I planned to roam,  

But I never thought I'd settle down so far away from home.

 

Being here isn't easy when I long to be with you;

Remembering the times we had and the things we used to do.

It wasn't so important when I was in my teens, but

Now I'm much older and this life is just a dream.

 CHORUS 

Well it seems like everyplace I go and everything I do,

Someone comes along who reminds me of you.

I never met a single one I thought could take your place,

With the laughter in your heart and the smile upon your face.

 CHORUS
