Song Meaning
Verse 1
(Home cookin', home cookin')
Verse 2
(Bob)
Oh woe is me, what goes with me
I hate this livin' I've chose for me
Verse 3
(Margaret)
Tired of meetin' misery
Should've never roamed and left that
Verse 4
(Both)
Home cookin', home cookin'
Life is cruel, I was a fool to roam
Verse 5
(Margaret)
I climb this hill, I try this dale
And then I step on a rusty nail
Verse 6
(Bob)
Never even get no mail
She's so far from all that goes with
Verse 7
(Both)
Home cookin', home cookin'
I'm afraid I shoulda stayed at home
Verse 8
(With a porch light, screen door
Banner from Niagara falls
Green grass, lawn mower
"Home, sweet home" upon the walls)
Verse 9
(Both)
That home cookin', home cookin'
Quiet life is quite the life for me
Verse 10
(Orchestral Break)
Verse 11
(Margaret)
I meet a guy, his name is Al
I wanna keep him in my corral
But he says he's just a pal
Never comes around to try my
Home cookin', home cookin'
Life is cruel, I was a fool to roam
Verse 12
(Bob)
When I go out, the sun goes in
The rain comes down and it soaks my skin
Jonah is my next o' kin
Darn the luck I shoulda stuck with
Home cookin', home cookin'
I'm afraid I shoulda stayed at home
Verse 13
(With a cricket chattin'
Summer nights you sit on the lawn
Dog wants pattin'
Nine o'clock you start to yawn
Verse 14
(Both)
That's home cookin', home cookin'
Quiet life is quite the life for me
Verse 15
(Musical Break)
Verse 16
(Both)
Rock of Ages on the organ
Thanksgivin' every day
Verse 17
(All)
Be it ever so humble
Give me that home cookin', home cookin
And I'll never go away
Verse 18
My ticket calls for Jasper Falls
I'm headin' home and I'm gonna stay!
