Recorded by Roger Miller
Written by Roger Miller

I've been a traveler the most of my life
G7 C
I never took a home I never took a wife

Ran away young and decided to roam
G7 C
But now I'd like to see my momma and my papa back home

Well a home where the river runs cold
G7 C F
The water tastes good the winters ain't cold
A home where trees grow tall
G7 C
The home fires burn the whippoorwills call

Well I remember stories that my pappy used to tell
G7 C
Yeah my eyes would get big my chest just a swell

I could sit for hours and listen with glee
G7 C
As he'd tell of how he lived when he's a boy like me

repeat #2

Now momma dear momma do you still love your boy
G7 C
After all my roamin' can I still bring you joy

Mom you sent a letter got it not long ago
G7 C
And you said to come home cause you're missin' me so
