Lyrics:

 ^ Don't it make you want to go home, now, don't it make you want to go home
All God's children get weary when they roam, don't it make you want to go home
Don't it make you want to go home

Oh, the whippoorwill roosts on the telephone pole and the Georgia sun goes down
Well, it's been a long time but I'm glad to say that I am goin' back down to my home town
Goin' down to the Greyhound station, gonna buy me a one-way fare
If the good Lord's willin' and the creeks don't rise by tomorrow I'm gonna be there

Don't it make you want to go home, now, don't it make you want to go home
All God's children get weary when they roam, don't it make you want to go home
Don't it make you want to go home

But 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 meadows used to grow
And the strawberries used to grow wild
There's a drag strip 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
Tell me, don't it make you wanna go home

Don't it make you want to go home, now, don't it make you want to go home
All God's children get weary when they roam, and God, how I want to go home x 3
