Johnny Horton - I'm Coming Home Lyrics




Get your face all pretty and your hair done right
'Cause we're gonna do the town tonight
Well, I'm comin' into town and right on time
I still got your lovin' on my mind

I'm a coming home, I gotta make some love
I'm a coming home, sweet turtle dove
I'm a coming home to make sweet love to you

Well, I see down the road there's a big truck stop
They got a pretty little waitress with the carrot top
She's pretty as a doll pretty as can be
But don't you worry honey she ain't nothin' to me

I'm a coming home, I gotta make some love
I'm a coming home, sweet turtle dove
I'm a coming home to make sweet love to you

Well, I came to a hill and the truck looked down
Throwed in low and she's huggin' the ground
Scratchin' gears but I'm goin' again
I'm comin' home baby, I'm doggin' it in

I'm a coming home, I gotta make some love
I'm a coming home, sweet turtle dove
I'm a coming home to make sweet love to you

Get your face all pretty and your hair done right
'Cause we're gonna do this town tonight
Well I'm comin' into town right on time
I still got your lovin' on my mind

I'm a coming home, I gotta make some love
I'm a coming home, sweet turtle dove
I'm a coming home to make sweet love to you

    Is this the original version of this song? Only heard covers before. Anyone know who wrote it?

    first time I've heard this Johnny Horton song, he could certainly sing to a fast and bouncy backing...
    musicmandon1..thats a very pleasant story...

    Johnny Horton was one of the very best. This song brings back memories of coming home after a long road trip when I broadcast baseball. My wife and I are both quite average-looking folks, but after a couple of weeks on the road, she would seem indescribably beautiful, and I would pull her in close with all the restraint of a college freshman with his first love.
