So far away out here alone,
Thoughts drift to Christmas time at home;
Friends and family gathered 'round,
Nestled in our quiet town;
Children's eyes so full of glee,
As they play around the Christmas tree.
Heading home for Christmas time this year.

Right away I know I'm there,
The strong north wind and the salt sea air;
Snow is drifting all around,
As I make my way to my hometown;
It's been so long since I've been gone,
My God! How much the children grow.
Heading home for Christmas time this year.

I'm heading home for Christmas time this year,
Spend some time with family,
enjoy the Christmas cheer;
Life in this prairie town gets longer year by year,
Heading home for Christmas time this year.

The bells ring out for Midnight Mass,
As down through the lane we pass;
Happy homes are all we see,
As we make this sacred journey;
It's the eve of the Christ Child's birth,
As we celebrate His life on earth,
Heading home for Christmas time this year.

Heading home for Christmas time this year,
Spend some time with family,
enjoy the Christmas cheer;
Life in this prairie town gets longer year by year,
Heading home for Christmas time this year.

Heading home for Christmas time this year,
Spend some time with family,
enjoy the Christmas cheer;
Life in this prairie town
gets longer year by year,
Heading home for Christmas...
Heading home for Christmas...
Heading home for Christmas time this year.
