Auerbach, Dan - Goin' Home Lyrics




I've spent too long away from home
Did all the things I could have done
Gone are the days of endless thrills
I know I'm not the only one
So long, I'm goin', goin' home

I saw the streets all ripe with jewels
Balconies and the laundry lines
They tried to make me welcome there
But their streets did not feel like mine
So long, I'm goin', goin' home

I want the sun to hit my face
Through oak trees in the open lot
Forget about the things you want
Be thankful for what all you've got

So long, I'm goin', goin' home
So long, I'm goin', goin' home
So long, I'm goin', goin' home

  14. santas little helper

    After some protest I ended up going to a John Prine concert last year (2017) that my girlfriend invited me to...on the way to the concert I looked at the ticket stubs and saw Dan Auerbach was the guest performer...I looked over at Bambi (my girlfriend), smiled, gave her a kiss and said " you have no idea how happy I am".

    Dans voice sounds great until you hear him live...then you realize that recordings and digital overlays can't do justice to hearing him in person. Had no idea that his real gift wasn't his ridiculously talented guitar playing or The black keys or even his song writing, it was his voice. I was left numb. If you have the chance to see/hear Dan play solo, Don't miss it!

    I've spent too long away from home
    Did all the things I could have done
    Gone are the days of endless thrills
    I know I'm not the only one
    So long, I'm goin', goin' home

    I saw the streets all ripe with jewels
    Balconies and the laundry lines
    They tried to make me welcome there
    But their streets did not feel like mine
    So long, I'm goin', goin' home

    I want the sun to hit my face
    Through oak trees in the open lot
    Forget about the things you want
    Be thankful for what all you've got

    So long, I'm goin', goin' home
    So long, I'm goin', goin' home
    So long, I'm goin', goin' home

  21. Wan Khairil Arif

    I've spent too long away from home
    Did all the things I could have done
    Gone are the days of endless thrills
    I know I'm not the only one

    So long, I'm goin', goin' home...

    I saw the streets all ripe with jewels
    Balconies and the laundry lines

  40. TheAmericanGunfighter 1916

    TCM remembers 2016

  41. James Tupper

    Anybody recognize what kind of guitar he's using to play this song?

  42. Anthony Van Zwaren, J.D.

    I liked this song especially after they played it accompanying the "reminiscences" of actors and directors and writers played on TMC for the New Years Eve 2016. It was very touching. The music really played well in the background with the images of those we lost like Gene Wilder, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.

  43. Gregory Erikson

    Heard this song for the first time this past weekend. Turner Classic Movies used it in a tribute to those actors and actresses who passed away in 2016. Couldn't believe how many left us last year. Song was spot on! Will have to buy this one.

  44. eadricson

    TCM did good using this for their "TCM Remembers 2016" video.

  45. Kathy Wells

    wow thank you Dan Auerbach for this beautiful song and thank you to TCM for choosing this for the 2016 tribute. There is no better choice. Thank you

  46. Rodney Goode

    THANKS TCM - never heard it, to classic, in less then 5 minutes

    Cheryl Czekala

    True to our lives now.

    Tuan Jim

    @Cheryl Czekala It's a good thing to be reminded of every now and then. Even the best of us end up being petty, envious and ungrateful at times. Beautiful song with a very real sentiment.

    rae L.

    Tuan Jim his music does it to me too

    Comfort music

  56. Diogo Amancio

    This song is majestic.

  57. numbus

    I had been wanting to learn guitar for most of my life (partly because of the Black Keys!), and have been finally learning guitar for the past year. I usually played some songs for people if they walked in on me practicing, but I recently learned how to play a song that meant so much to me and played it for my best friend with my full heart. He fell back on the sofa smiling his ass off and crying and said it blew his mind. The feeling of being able to muster up so many good feelings in a person was indescribable. I wish I could tell Dan all of the good feelings this song brings up in me, and just how much it means to me.

    Malte Mensch

    +numbus oh i really like that song. thank you! :)

    ElChansey

    +numbus what site did you use to learn it?

    numbus

    +ElChansey There's no tabs online so I learned it by ear. The picking is not that hard to figure out which is nice, but you do have to hammer and pluck. If you want I can try and describe it as best as I can through a text box. The chords are pretty simple: G for the whole thing, C for bridge one, and alternating C and G for bridge two with one Am thrown in there. Capo on 4th (but I play it without the capo because I find it easier to sing for a male voice).

    ElChansey

    +numbus nah you don't need to explain it. I can figure it out. I've leaned songs by ear before I just don't like taking the time to do it haha. thanks for the chords though! that'll help out.

    Lora Vipperman

    That's beautiful! You just put a smile on my face😊 Thank you!

  58. konakick

    this song needs to be on the walking dead

    WARD

    Totally agree .. Like in a good season finale with a sorta happy & sad ending you know ?

    Lewis Cullum

    A message from the future, the walking dead will fucking ruin it with its cancerous fan base

  59. Santino Piceno

    Jk I love this song😇

  60. ElChansey

    thanks so much for 100k views!

  61. KonaGang

    Wonderful!

  62. Trey Jones

    I feel like this song needs to be in Richard Linklater's next masterpiece!

    Trey Jones

    Never mind! I knew it sounded familiar from a movie. Up In the Air! Such a great film!

  63. Richard Reed

    I don't think anyone else could sing or play this song as well as Dan Auerbach. Great lyrics, great work on the instruments. I love it.

  64. Olivia

    I don't see my dad often, but when it's just the two of us on roadtrips we play this song. Some of my favorite memories. 

  65. Gofa ku

    not bad

  66. Tyrone Pioche

    I loved this song the moment it entered my ears.

    TheVoluntaryistPilot

    Me too brother.. Me too..

  67. Zen Dog

    This song moves me... I'm going to learn to play and sing it, then share it with my friends.

  68. Valerie Michelle

    I wish I had the instrumental of this..

  69. Janet Evans

    Crazy about this song!

  70. Captain Falcon Gaming

    Wow dan can make some hood music without Patrick

    Dixie

    Any half ass drummer could do patrick's job. The only reason he's with Dan is because they grew up playing together in Ohio.

    Mark Acker

    @Dixie
    And what's wrong with that?

    Dixie

    It's really a neutral statement

    javier B

    @Dixie Patrick is given credit for co-writing and producing . 

    Carl Teh

    listen to Bojack's theme by Patrick carney he makes good ass shit too!

  71. AlbertRozze
