Chorus

[D]When I was a [Bm]young boy sure I [G]longed to see the [D]world

To [A]sail around the [A7]sea in ships and [D]see the sails un[Bm]furled

I [D]went to seek my [G]fortune on the [D]far side of the [A]hill

I have wandered far and [A7]wide and of the travel had my [D]fill.

Chorus

And now it’s home, [A]boys, [D]home! [Bm]Home I’d like to be!

[G]Home for a [D]while in the [Bm]old coun[A]try

Where the [D]oak and the [G]ash and the [D]bonny rowan [A]tree

Are all growing [G]greener in the [A7]old coun[D]try.

Well I left my love behind me and I sailed across the tide
I said that I’d be back again and take her for my bride
But many years have passed and gone and I’m still far away
I know she is my fond true-love and waiting for the day.

Chorus

Now I’ve learned there’s more to life than to wander and to roam
Happiness and peace of mind can be found at home
For money can’t buy happiness and money cannot bind
So I’m going back tomorrow to the girl i left behind.
