no one to welcome me home lyrics – hank williams

recorded by hank williams, sr.
words and music by joe earls

[e] i went to the old home — where i [a] once used to [e] roam
and all of my friends — had [f#] ev’ryone [b7] gone
how [e] sad and how drear — no [a] voice did i [e] hear
there was no one — to [b7] welcome me [e] home.

[e] no one — to welcome me home;
oh! no, no one — to [f#] welcome me [b7] home
how [e] sad and how drear — no [a] voice could i [e] hear
there was no one — to [b7] welcome me [e] home.

i went to the old school — where i once loved to play
and all of my playmates had every one gone
so lonesome and drear — no voice did i hear
there was no one — to welcome me home.

no one – to welcome me home
there was one — to welcome me home
but, when i behold — that mansion of gold
there’ll be someone — to welcome me home.
