Going Home
sung by Paul Robeson
at Carnegie Hall on May 9, 1958

(arr. Fisher)
{set to the music of Dvorak's 9th Symphony, third movement}



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!
