Now the days are getting longer
My dreams are growing stronger
I need to be back home again
With the one I love

Not a job to be had where I’m from
No one left, it seems they’ve all gone
Up there in the northern towns
Shipyards closing down

Oh but here in the south
I’ve had enough
It’s time to go back home

Hold on cause I’m on my way
You’re going to feel my kisses come today
Hold on when I’m on the train
You’re going to hear that whistle blow
Be strong cause I’m on my way
You’re going to feel my loving arms today
Not long till I’m on the train
You’re going to hear that whistle blow

Many more have had to leave now,
Gotta find a job and somehow,
Make a living in a different world
That our fathers knew
Better days will surely be here,
I got to go cause I gotta see her.
So hard for those at home,
Waiting all alone

And when you call at night
and you begin to cry
It’s time to go back home
Hold on cause I’m on my way
You’re going to feel my kisses come today
Hold on cause I’m on the train
You’re going to hear that whistle blow
Be strong cause I’m on my way
You’re going to feel my loving arms today
Not long cause I’m on my train
You’re going to hear that whistle blow
You’re going to hear that whistle blow
You’re going to hear that whistle blow

Hold on
Hold on, cause I’m on my way
Hold on
Hold on, cause I’m on my way
Hold on
Hold on, cause I’m on my way
Hold on
Hold on, cause I’m on my way
Hold on
