Description
Short Song Description:
A universal appreciation of coming home.
Long Song Description:
This could be a song that GI's or road musicians or travelling salesmen or anyone else who is away, could relate to--and, in fact, would make a great state song, too.
Story Behind the Song:
Written while driving home from a gig just before sunrise on the NY Thruway. The first verse was the visual. Sometimes it's good to not have music playing in the car--you get a chance to be inspired.

Lyrics
HOME IN MY HEART
music & lyrics by Sam Cooper
615-469-4067 jericat@yahoo.com

1) I'm passin' by the silhouettes of the mountains,
Across the early mornin' sky,
The sun ain't up, but the mist is climbin' through the trees,
And it all reminds me why,

(chorus)
I'm going home in my heart (2x)
No matter where I am in this whole wide world,
My family and my friends and that special girl,
Take me home in my heart.

2) Well, I just wrapped up another gig,
And I broke a few strings tryin' to pick that thing,
And it sure felt good to make a few new friends,
And it sure felt good to shake a few new hands,
But I can't wait to get back again to that place of which I'm part.

3) Well, I'm just like an old hound dog,
Hangin' out on the porch,
Well, you sure can't tell just where I've been,
And you sure as hell don't know what I've seen,
But when I go away, I'm comin' back again,
To the place where I did start.

(repeat chorus)

(bridge)
Everybody needs to find someone,
Everybody needs a home,
Everybody needs to have some love,
Nobody should be alone.
Everybody needs to have someone,
Everybody needs a home,
Everybody needs to have some love,
Nobody should be alone.

(repeat chorus)

(second version of chorus)
Yeah, I'm walkin' home in my heart,
I'm drivin', I'm flyin' home in my heart.
I'm gonna get there any way I can,
Cause I sure don't like to be a lonely man,
I'm goin' home in my heart.

(bridge)
Everybody needs to have someone,
Everybody needs a home,
Everybody needs to have some love,
Nobody should be alone.
Everybody needs to have someone,
Nobody should be alone.
Everybody needs to have someone,
Everybody needs a home.
