  • Leave my suitcase by the car I'll bring it in in the mornin'
    Stack my guitar case just inside the door
    Pet the dog too tired to wag his tail
    Check the mail and walk on down the hallway
    I've got to fix these old floor boards
    Wash up at the sink, glance in the mirror
    Who is that man who ain't been here in three long weeks or maybe more?

    All this gettin' off the road has got me ragged to the bone and coming home
    There ain't no homecoming party

    Pop a yellow pill, the kind for sleepin' through
    The sound of wakin' children when the daylight starts to show
    And it's silent up the carpet stairs and peek into the nursery
    Where the little ones are dreamin' sweet and low
    I can hear 'em cryin', "daddy where you been?
    And did you bring me back a present from a distant sunny shore?"

    All this gettin' off the road has got me ragged to the bone and coming home
    There ain't no homecoming party

    Oh it's 10,000 places and 20,000 faces
    And half a million miles I'm bound to row
    And I'm weary and wasted, and all that I can taste is
    One lonesome tear on the tip of my tongue
    She must've left the light on I'll just slip into the bed and let it burn
    And when our bodies touch I'l pull away and not disturb her
    Even though I long for love so much it hurts
    And maybe we won't argue in the mornin'
    We'll be makin' love and just let that old calendar turn

    All this gettin' off the road has got me ragged to the bone and coming home
    Sure ain't no homecoming party Writer/s: Ketch Secor
