Performer: Paul Robeson.
Lyrics: William Arms Fisher.
Tune: Antonín Dvořák.


Going home, going home
I’m just going home
Quiet-like, some still day
I’m just going home
It’s not far, just close by
Through an open door
Work all done, care laid by
Going to fear no more
Mother’s there expecting me
Father’s waiting, too
Lots of folks gathered there
All the friends I knew
All the friends I knew
Home, home
I’m going home
Nothing lost, all’s gain
No more fret nor pain
No more stumbling on the way
No more longing for the day
Going to roam no more
Morning star lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadows gone, break of day
Real life just begun
There’s no break, there’s no end
Just a living on
Wide awake, with a smile
Going on and on
Going home, going home
I’m just going home
It’s not far, just close by
Through an open door
I’m just going home
Going home
