C                                 Dm
Oh the whippoorwill roosts on the telephone pole
        G                C
And the Georgia sun goes down
C                                  Dm
Well it's been a long time but I'm glad to say I'm
G                          C
Goin' back down to my home town
C                 Dm
Goin' down to the Greyhound station
G                      C
Gonna buy me a one way fare
C                         Dm
Good lord willin' and the creek don't rise
G                         C
By tomorrow I'll be right there

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

C                              Dm
But there's a six-lane highway down by the creek
G                                Dm
Where I went skinny dippin' as a child
C                              Dm
And a drive-in show where the meadow used to grow
G                                C
And strawberries used to grow wild
C                                Dm
There's a drag strip down by the riverside
         G                     C
Where my grandma's cow used to graze
C                                 Dm
Now the grass don't grow and the river don't flow
G                           C
Like it did in my childhood days

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