Take Me Home

I long to go to a place to live
Where people know my name
Since I left my home in West Virginia
Life hasn't been the same.

I've lived in this place for so long
And not one person cares enough to say
Good morning to you neighbor
Or hello, and have a good day.

I hardly ever see a sincere smile
If I died no one would care
Except my friends I left behind
How I long to move back there.

People here don't know my heart
They don't even know my name.
The saddest part of all of this
When I go, they won't even know I came.

Oh take me home to where I know
People know my name
Where I'll see some sincere smiles
And they'll all be glad I came.
