Hootie & The Blowfish - I'm Going Home Lyrics




Mama please don't go
Won't you stay here for one more day
I've been your boy for so long now
There's so much I still have to say
Sky rips open, and I hold my heart in my hand
Like a soldier on his very last day
Cried myself to sleep that night, and I listened
As I heard the angels sing
[Chorus:]
Sha la la la Sha la la la, I'm going home.
Sha la la la Sha la la la, I'm going home.
Something inside makes me scream
How could God take you from a little boy
He'll be alright, he's by my side
He's no little boy, he's my pride and joy
[Repeat chorus]
Summer on the radio and the phone rings
And it was Jeanette
She said boy we had to let her go
I begged her no, no not yet
You left six of us to fend for ourselves
I guess it's part of someone's master plan
I see you laughing, you're my best friend
You're the light of the lamb, and I cried
as the angels sing
[Repeat chorus twice]

  1. The Nonsense Buffer

    Great performance.

  2. Sheri Gentry

    Was there ✌️

  3. Karla Straight

    Darius wrote two beautiful songs about his mother's passing-this one and "Even the trees".
    This one is so much stronger and more emotional to me, the line about "you left six of us to fend for ourselves."

  4. Gerard Williams

    I've grown to appreciate performances like this for the raw energy. They can perform this same song today and it will be just lyrics.

  5. Sheri Gentry

    Was there.

  6. Tim Straight

    Reminds me so much of my mother's recent passing . God bless you Darius. Kay

  7. JNT-EIR SHALOM7

    So Painful...My Dad Passed Away..Seems Like Yesterday. Darius, Praise Jesus For Healing Our Pain-For Loving On Us. Jesus Said He Will Be A Mother & Father To Us! Thank You Lord!

    He'll be alright, he's by my side
    He's no little boy, he's my pride and joy
    [Repeat chorus]
    Summer on the radio and the phone rings
    And it was Junette
    She said boy we had to let her go
    I begged her no, no not yet
    You left six of us to fend for ourselves
    I guess it's part of someone's master plan
    I see you laughing, you're my best friend
    You're the light of the lamb, and I cried
    as the angels sing
    [Repeat chorus twice]

  9. Ernest Hayes

    Jack Mazza

    I long for the day people stop talking about skin color.

  10. Robert Stockton

    Oh she's proud of you Darius, just take me home now....

    mona williams

    Colby Bryan

    mona williams he is Mark Bryan

    mona williams

    Colby Bryan Thank you so much. I seen him in concert years ago over seas and he sang a song but I just can't remember that darn song.

  11. Apryle Davis

    what a beautiful goodbye to his mama

  12. Nancy Fox

    Hootie and the Blowfish's, Cracked Rear View, is timeless music. These songs were new then. He sounds just like the album. So many great song on one album. Amazing.

  13. Harry Reed

    I lost my mother a few years ago and someone asked me how long does it take until the pain goes away and my answer was when I get there I will call you.

  14. Kristi Merchant

    just lost MY MAMA, I CAN RELATE DARIUS this is so hard

  15. Chubzdoomer

    Such an amazingly underrated song... Oh, how I miss this band.

  16. xthepierrex

    This was one of my absolute favorite albums in high school, and before I turned 30 I had lost both of my parents within a year of each other. Reconnecting to this album really hit home for me what he was going through at that time in his life. I still play this song every year on the day my mom passed away.

  17. Gunny Wallen

    Darius's loss of his mother deeply affected him. The raw emotion is all over this record and especially this song.
