Some other versions of "Home Away From Home"


Right across the Ohio River you can get your kicks
All the young people are doing it
Down on Bardstown Road we can get some girls
Just bring along your blues and make your money down here
Come on and see what I’m talking about
Forget what it means to be down and out
When we see you comin’ we’ll surely jump and shout
Yes, we’ll have a regular, sure gonna have a regular
Good ole time down at the derby ball

Yes, we’re gonna have a good time, it’s true
Oh, you’re gonna see
In that big little city down there in Louisville, what is that to me?
It’s my home away from home
Come on and take a walk on down to memory lane
You ain’t gonna find me down on 4th and Main
I’m following the ghost of Clifford Hayes
On down to Carpet Alley where his jug band played
Do the Nanny Goat Strut on down to Market Street
The trolley hop, sho’ nuff, man that’s the place to be
Sunset on the river is a sight to see
Watchin’ the barges moving slowly
Just like a duck on a millpond
Trust me from experience
Fun times, I’ve had a million
Whether falling love down in the Louisville summer
Or walking hand in hand through the Tyler Park tunnel
If life keeps throwing you backwards, man
You know you gotta come on down there to the southern land
Where there’s a big little city where the bluegrass grows
It’s got some small town charm just like the bourbon flows
You know the bourbon’s gonna flow like wine
