Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm afraid to go home
I'm afraid to go home
Worries on my mind
Afraid of what I'll find
Verse 2
Will my family be gone
I'm afraid to go home
Back to Tennessee
Afraid of what I'll see
Verse 3
As I walk down this dusty road
Got a heart with a heavy load
Ain't a thing that's the same
So much sorrow and pain
Verse 4
Heading home in a single file
Every inch is a quarter mile
Ain't heard nobody sing
Ain't seen one living thing
Verse 5
Someone's waiting for me
Honey sweet as can be
Wanna hold her tight
Lord, make her be all right
Verse 6
Maybe 'round the next bend
All the ashes'll end
Valleys will be green
Instead of what I've seen
Verse 7
I'm afraid for the scrubby pine
Aw, the sweet honeysuckle vine
I'm afraid for my home
For the fields that I roamed
Verse 8
Kick along down a homeward road
And your heart's gotta take the load
I'm afraid to go home
I'm afraid to go home
Verse 9
Sherman's been in my town
Burned it all to the ground
Now there's not a tree
'Tween Memphis and the sea
Now there's not a tree
'Tween Memphis and the sea
