Charley Pride Take Me Home Lyrics

Last updated:

Well I've been from Boston to LA seen Boulder Dam and Frisco Bay
Into New York City and Washington
Seen Montreal and Saskatchewan and Rhode Island
And I've worked in three all night service stations and drove a truck
Take me home my heart is heavy and my feet are sore
Take me home I don't wanna roam no more

Well I slept all night in a water trough
Had the flu and the croup and the whoopin' cough
Had the mumps and the measles and the seven years itch
And I can't count the times that I've had a cold and sore throat
Not to mention all the times that I've cut my fingers on a sardine can
Take me home...

Well I can just see 'em all now just a gatherin' round
Mama's supper table when the sun goes down
And my good old pappy when the blessing is said
Fillin' up his plate with black eyed peas and side meat
And a great big hunk of my dear sweet mama's hot buttered cornbread
Take me home...
Take me home...
