Lyrics

FAR FROM MY HOME
Words and Music By Greg Young

I was the younger son / Some say the foolish one.
Got my share early and I took it on the road.
Made friends in every town / when I laid my money down.
Never dreamed I'd feed upon the seed that I had sown...

Far from my home. Far from my home.

Now I'm on the road again, / barefoot and growing thin,
dressed in the rags of sin. That's all that's left of me.
I'm heading back to see / if he will welcome me,
just let me be a servant. Oh I will never roam...

Far from my home. Far from my home.

My father sees me and he runs to me. He runs.
He says "I've always been your father
and you've always been my son
even when you were

Far from my home. Far from my home."
