GREGG ALLMAN lyrics - I Believe I'll Go Back Home

GREGG ALLMAN
"I Believe I'll Go Back Home"
(Traditional)

When I left my Father's house, I was well supplied
I made a mistake when I did go, now I'm dissatisfied
I believe I'll go back home, I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home, acknowledge I've done wrong

I'll go back to my Father's house, the place I love so dear
There they have plenty to eat, Lord, I am starving here
I'll go back to my Father's house, and fall down on my face
Declare I am not worthy to receive a servants place
I believe I'll go back home, I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home, acknowledge I've done wrong

When father saw me coming, he did greet me with a smile
Threw his arms around him, saying,"Here's my wandering child!"
Father said to my brother "Go kill the fatted calf,
Tell our friends and relatives, my son's home at last!"
I believe I'll go back home, I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home, acknowledge I've done wrong

My brother he was jealous, I believe I heard him say
"You give to him my portion, I never went away!"
Father said to my brother "You have been both good and kind,
Not calf I've given thee - all I have is thine."
I believe I'll go back home, I believe I'll go back home
I believe I'll go back home, acknowledge I've done wrong
