I'm Afraid To Go Home
Brian Hyland


I'm afraid to go home
I'm afraid to go home
Worries on my mind
Afraid of what I'll find

Will my family be gone?
I'm afraid to go home
Back to Tennessee
Afraid of what I'll see

As I walk down this dusty road
Got a heart with a heavy load
Ain't a thing that's the same
So much sorrow and pain

Headin' home in a single file
Every inch is a quarter mile
Ain't heard nobody sing
Ain't seen one livin' thing

Someone's waitin' for me
Honey sweet as candy
Wanna hold her tight
Lord, make her be all right

Maybe 'round on next bend
All the ashes o' land
Valleys will be green
Instead of what I've seen

I'm afraid for the scrubby pine
Ah, the sweet honeysuckle vine
I'm afraid for my home
For the fields that I roamed

Jig along down a homeward road
And your heart's gotta take the load
I'm afraid to go home
I'm afraid to go home

Sherman's been in my town
Burned it all to the ground
Now there's not a tree
'Tween Memphis and the Sea
Now there's not a tree
'Tween Memphis and the Sea
