Hometown, want to wander round your backstreets
See your tumbledown old shack streets
I'd love to walk in on those corny country cousins of mine

Hometown, where they get up in the morning
All the days their busy yawning
I'll get a welcome from those corny country cousins of mine

There's an old schoolhouse door
We used to tumble through at four
And a small candy store
Where I could go a dozen lollipops and ask for more

Hometown, where the garden trees are shady
Where our Eadie was a lady
I'm going back to see those corny country cousins of mine
