"I Want to Go Home"

Dere's no rain to wet you,
O, yes, I want to go home.
Dere's no sun to burn you,
O, yes, I want to go home;

O, push along, believers,
O, yes, I want to go home.
Dere's no hard trials,
O, yes, I want to go home.

Dere's no whips on de wayside,
O, yes, I want to go home.
O, push along, my brudder,
O, yes, I want to go home.

Where dere's no stormy weather,
O, yes, I want to go home.
Dere's no tribulation,
O, yes, I want to go home."
