Go Back Home
Off-Broadway Musical
The Scottsboro Boy - Go Back Home Lyrics

Lyin' all alone
I'm thinkin'
Starin' at the stars
I wonder
Since I been away
I'm lonely
When I'm gonna go back home

Walkin' through the world
Things happen
Right before ya eyes
Things happen
Soon enough you're lost
And thinkin'
When I'm gonna go back home

Oh me oh my
Time goes slow
Where's it gone to
I don't know

But maybe times'll turn
I pray so
Maybe some day I'll get lucky
Someone's gonna say
Alright son
Take the train and go back home
Hop a freight and go back home

SPOKE:
Hop a freight? I'd walk all the way back to Atlanta if I could.
I wouldn't stop til I got there. No more nightmares.
Guards beatin' me. Teasin' me.
And I'd be home for my birthday too! Now that would be some present.

SUNG:
Oh me oh my
Time goes slow
Where's it gone to
I don't know

But maybe times'll turn
I pray so
Maybe some day I'll get lucky
Someone's gonna say
Alright son
Take the train and go back home
Hop a freight and go back home
