Home boys home

Lyrics

When I was a young boy sure I longed to see the world
To sail around the sea in ships and see the sails unfurled
I went to seek my fortune on the far side of the hill
I wandered far and wide and of travel I’ve had my fill

Chorus
And it’s home boys, home
Home I’d like to be, home for a while in the old country
Where the oak and the ash and the bonnie rowan tree
Are all growing greener in the old country.

Well I left my love behind me and I sailed across the tide
I said that I’d be back again and take her for me bride
But many years have passed and gone and still I’m far away
And I know she is my fond true love awaiting for the day

Chorus

Now I’ve learned there’s more to life than to wander and to roam
Happiness and peace of mind can best be found at home
For money can’t buy happiness and money can not bind
So I’m going back tomorrow to the girl I left behind

Chorus
