Well I made my home in Carolina
Among these old mountains green
But my heart and my soul will always linger
Where the cotton grows and the muddy rivers gleam

Take me home
Where I belong
When it comes
Time for me to go
Lay me down
In that fertile ground
Where the hot summer wind
Forever blows

At night I dream of catfish swimmin'
And pecans lyin' amongst dead leaves
Oh and I can hear the mockingbird a callin'
And the honeysuckle's heavy on the breeze


In all the years it's been since I came out here
I don't regret the movin', not at all
But the sound of thunder never fails to move me
To heed that ever achin' homeward call
