Lyrics

[Conway]
There’s a storm across the valley
The clouds’re rolling in
The afternoon is heavy on my shoulders
There’s a truck on the forelane
A mile or more away
The whining of his wheels just makes it colder.

I’m an hour away from ridin’
On your prayers up in the skies
Ten days on the road I’m nearly home
There’s a fire softly burning
Supper’s on the stove
But the light in your eyes makes me warm.

Hey, it’s good to be back home again, yes it is
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend
Hey, it’s good to be back home again.

[Loretta]
There’s lots of news to tell you
How I spent my time
About the latest things the neighbors say
And your mother called last Friday
Somethin’ makes her cry
And I felt our baby moved, just yesterday.

Hey, it’s good to have you home again hmm
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend
Hey, it’s good to have you home again.

It’s the sweetest thing I know of
Just spendin’ time with you
It’s the little things that make a house a home
[Conway]
Like a fire softly burning and supper’s on the stove
But it’s the light in your eyes that makes me warm.

[Both]
Hey, it’s good to be back home again, yes it is
Sometimes this old farm feels like a long lost friend
Honey, it’s good to have you home again

Oh, ain’t it good to be together again?..
