Rich, Charlie - Feel Like Going Home Lyrics

Lord I feel like going home
I tried and failed and I'm tired and weary
Everything I ever done was wrong
And I feel like going home

Lord I tried to see it through
But it was too much for me
And now I'm coming home to you
And I feel like going home

Cloudy skies are rolling in
And not a friend around to help me
From all the places I have been
And I feel like going home

Lord I feel like going home
I tried and failed and I'm tired and weary
Everything I ever done was wrong
And I feel like going home

Rich, Charlie Feel Like Going Home Comments
  1. Gerwyn Evans

    Apart from the lighthearted pop hit "Mohair Sam," much of Rich's career output unfortunately coincided with the "countrypolitan" schmaltz period of Nashville in the 1970's. This heartfelt song was the exception.

  2. AuntieMHere

    Beautiful gospel sound, all the way up and down the piano. Reminds me of Harry Stewart's "End of My Journey."
    Pure genius, both.

  3. AuntieMHere

    Thanks so much for this video. I saw Charlie Rich singing it on TV decades ago but couldn't remember the title and couldn't find it (no Internet back then). Sister insisted I meant the song "don't it make you wanna go home." Nope. Comforting song. Does anyone remember a version by a man with a raspy voice? A bit like Joe Cocker, but much higher range. I couldn't find it by googlin. Thanks to all, and especially to Guy Miller for solving my mystery...

    This son is so soulful - who hasn't felt this to their bone? I sure do/have.

  9. Thom Bradley

    Emi A Young. 1971-2013. You just couldn't play the game of life anymore. You were declared at scene 7 Dec. 2013. You ended your earthly race early,at only 42.

  16. Sethu Sekhar

    One of the local NPR stations plays this song at the end of their Monday night "Soul Serenade" program. However, it is a bit faster version. He must have recorded it on different albums.

  17. David Kerrigan

    If there is anyone around who actually knew Charlie Rich, I should be most grateful to hear from him or her. I met Charlie when I was about seven years old. He made a big impression on me and quite frankly despite his faults I still consider him a great man. I haven't long to live now and I have some unanswered questions. I wish he were still around to talk to.

  18. Spencer Schultz

    it reminds me when I go back to great wolf lodge it was like home

    I've been fighting stage 4 cancer for over two years. Heart disease also. Even though I thank God that I feel good on most days I'm constantly going to clinics other than chemo (5) .  I'm just plain tired. this song speaks for me.

    Dolf Zeevogel

    +Ivy jackson I know how you feel. It feels like hell. But hang in there!  I'm probably on the other side of the world from you, but I wish you the strength you need.

    Ivy jackson

    I'm doing surprisingly okay... 'still hating on the clinic visits but the clinics are  part of my life line.  Thanks for your message. Blessings to you.
