Two or four parts.
1. Home a - gain, home a - gain, From a for - eign shore! And
2. Hap - py hearts, hap - py hearts, With mine have laughed in glee, And
3. Mu - sic sweet, mu - sic soft, Ling-ers round the place, And
oh, it fills my soul with joy, To meet my friends once more,
oh, the friends I loved in youth, Seem hap - pi - er to me;
oh, I feel the child - hood charm That time can - not ef - face.
Here I dropped the part- ing tear, To cross the o - cean's foam,
And if my guide should be the fate, Which bids me long-er roam,
Then give me but my homestead roof, I'll ask no pal - ace dome,
1st stanza in D.C.
But now I'm once a - gain with those Who kind- ly greet me home.
But death a - lone can break the tie That binds my heart to home.
For I can live a hap - py life With those I love at home.
