Don't It Make You Want to Go Home - The Persuations/Joe South & The Believers/John Denver & Glen Campbell

 
Don't It Make You Want to Go Home
Don`t It Make You Want to Go Home?

Don`t it make you want to go home?
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, long time
but I`m glad to say that I am
Goin` back to my home town

Goin` down to the Greyhound station
Gonna buy me a one-way fare
And 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?
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?
Don`t it make you wanna go home?
All God`s children get weary when they roam
Don`t it make you wanna, wanna go home?
