I'm coming home and home will I stay and never no

I'm looking for a song for my father. He sang it when he was in high school (early 50's) and remembers one line ...

"I'm coming home and home will I stay and never no never again will I go wondering far away."

I've looked everywhere I can think of, including academic music databases, but have had no success.

Everyone I have talked with thinks it's an Irish Folk song, so I'm hoping someone here can help!

Thanks!

Down the road I'm going down the road I'm going back to where I belong.
I've come a long long way. I've traveled night and day.
In my heart there's this lonely song.
Oh, I'll be kissing Mom and hugging Pa and sis and little brother
And we'll laugh with one another and we'll say remember when
And we'll sing these songs, these happy songs when friends come to meet me
Gather round come and greet me and sing..

(Chorus)
I'm coming home and home I will stay.
Never, no never again will I go wandering far, far away.
Oh, never, no never again will I go wandering far, far away.

Another mile or two and I'll be passing through those fields of sweet golden corn.
And, if my mem'ries true, beneath the skies of blue I'll be passing near the home where I was born.
Oh, I'll be kissing Mom and hugging Pa and sis and little brother
And we'll laugh with one another and we'll say remember when
And we'll sing these songs, these happy songs when friends come to meet me
Gather round come and greet me and sing.

Chorus


I can send you a photo copy of an arrangement which was copyrighted by my accordion teacher, if you would like. My e-mail is This email address is being protected from spambots.

Also, search the terms mike joan and polka on youtube and you should find us singing the song with our accordions.
