How I long to go back to my hometown,
Where the air is so clean,
and the grass oh so green;
All those friendly smiling faces to greet you,
It's a welcome from the old and from the new.

I recall that lonesome day
when I had to move away,
Employment for to seek,
another place to settle down;
How those teardrops filled my eyes,
as I waved my last goodbyes,
To the loved ones that I left
behind in my old hometown.

When I wake up in the morn,
I still hear that old foghorn,
With the birds singing
sweetly in the trees;
As I listen to the rain,
beating on my window pane,
I'm dreaming when I'll be home again.

How I long to go back to my hometown,
Where the air is so clean,
and the grass oh so green;
All those friendly smiling faces to greet you,
It's a welcome from the old and from the new.

Many years have come and gone,
in my heart I still belong,
To that place that I call heaven by the sea;
Where the ocean breezes blow
and the quiet rivers flow,
Where folks are known for hospitality.

There's a welcome at the door
for the rich or for the poor,
A stranger or a friend can walk right in;
They can share a cup of tea,
or enjoy a good old spree,
Oh, how I wish to be with them again.

How I long to go back to my hometown,
Where the air is so clean,
and the grass oh so green;
All those friendly smiling faces to greet you,
It's a welcome from the old and from the new.
It's a welcome from the old and from the new.
