  • My mama showed me how to rock in the cradle
    But I learned how to roll along
    My papa said "son, gotta git some fun
    Cos when you're old it ain't too good on your own"
    Been so long, since you heard my song
    Gonna pick up my guitar 'n' play
    Felt so bad when I had to leave you
    But, I knew that I'd be back some day

    So I'm comin' home
    To give you more than you bargained for
    Comin' home
    No mistake, I'm gonna shiver 'n' shake
    Comin' home
    Gonna rock 'n' roll an' give you my soul
    Comin' home
    I got over the pain, I'm comin' home again

    Groovin' to American Bandstand
    B.B. onstage with 'Lucille'
    The thrill is gone, but it won't be for long
    Cos you know I like to play how I feel
    Now that we're all back together
    Gonna shiver 'n' shake all night
    I just gotta say, the music I play
    Will sure 'nough make you feel alright

    Tho' I learned how to rock in the cradle
    An' rollin' came so easy to me
    All the years I travelled the world
    Made it so clear to see
    It's been so long since you heard my song
    Gonna pick up my guitar 'n' play
    Felt so bad when I had to leave you
    But I knew that I'd be back some day

    Comin' home
    To give you more than you bargained for
    Comin' home
    No mistake, I'm gonna shiver and shake
    Comin' home
    Gonna rock 'n' roll and give you my soul
    Comin' home
    I got over the pain, I'm comin' home again
    Comin' home
    Shiver 'n' shakin', anticpatin'
    Comin' home
    The thrill is gone but it won't be for long Writer/s: DAVID COVERDALE, IAN ANDERSON PAICE, TOMMY BOLIN
