Back Home Again - John Denver/with The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band/Woody Wright with Joy Gardner and Stephen Hill/Conway & Loretta/Dickie Rock/Juaner Dominguez

Back Home Again

There's a storm across the valley, clouds are rollin' in 
The afternoon is heavy on your shoulders. 
There's a truck out on the four lane, a mile or more away 
The whinin' of his wheels just makes it colder. 

He's an hour away from ridin' on your prayers up in the sky 
And ten days on the road are barely gone. 
There's a fire softly burning, supper's on the stove 
But it's the light in your eyes that makes him warm. 

Hey, it's good to be back home again 
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend 
Yes, 'n, hey it's good to be back home again 

After all the news to tell him, how's you spend your time
And what's the latest thing the neighbors say 
and your mother called last friday, sunshine made her cry 
And you felt the baby move just yesterday. 


And oh, the time that I can lay this tired old body down 
And feel your fingers feather soft up on me 
The kisses that I live for, the love that lights my way 
The happiness that livin' with you brings me. 

It's the sweetest thing I know of, just spending time with you 
it's the little things that make a house a home. 
Like a fire softly burning and supper on the stove. 
And the light in your eyes that makes me warm
