A LITTLE HOME TO GO TO

This song grew around a few guitar phrases. It became a succinct autobiography, an expression of contentment, and a new song garment suspended on a sturdy old musical hanger.

A LITTLE HOME TO GO TO

(Jody Stecher/ Vegetiboy Music, BMI)

I rambled over this country from Maine to Tennessee

Not a dollar to my name and I never found a home for me

chorus:

Got a little home to go to

Got a little home to go to

Got a little home to go to

Now I never want to go away

I’ve been over the oceans, been ‘cross many a sea

I only got in a little trouble, it was trouble enough for me

chorus

Got a little home to go to, got a little toast and tea

Got me a little good woman; she’s big enough for me

chorus

Got a little bread and coffee, got a pot of pinto beans

Got a little home to go to; it’s bigger than it seems

chorus

Where did you get that button sewn on your hat so fine?

Where did you get such a winning smile? 

It gets me every time

I got this button in Paree, I’m the one who made my hat

I get my smile from the way I feel 

when you look at me like that.

chorus
