Program Note

Bring Me Home is a folk song with darker undertones that tells the story of a narrator who longs to return home, possibly after having witnessed or done something haunting.

This SSA arrangement would work well for a high-school, college, or small chamber ensemble of female voices.

Text

Home, home, home

This train’s gonna bring me home.

Home, home, home

This train’s gonna bring me home.

I won’t stop traveling,

I won’t stop traveling

Till I’m home, home, home

Won’t stop till I’m home.

 

Far away,

I’ve been so far away.

Far away,

I’ve been so far away.

I’ve been travelin’ a long, long time,

Far too long from this love of mine.

Far away,

Far too far away.

 

I’ve been travelin’ a long, long time.

I need to find a place to lay this head of mine.

I’ve been wanderin’ for far too long.

I wonder if anybody knows I’m gone.

 

I can’t unsee what my eyes have seen.

I can’t undo what my hands have done.

I can’t unhear what my ears have heard.

It’s time for me to go…

 

Home, home, home

These feet gonna bring me home.

Home, home, home

These feet gonna bring my home.

I won’t stop traveling, I won’t stop traveling,

Till I’m home, home, home

Won’t stop till I’m home.
