Donna Hughes — Almost Home lyrics

Loaded up the car and said goodbye
Looked at that old school one last time
No more homework and tears
And I'll miss the friends that I made here

Chorus: But I'm almost home, where they meet you with a smile and open arms
I'm almost home, where you never see a stranger and folks know who you are
I'm almost home, where I'll be welcomed like a star
I've been waiting for the day and I've been dreaming of your face
and I'm almost home

Went to serve his country far away
In a land where all the skies were grey
Letters froze the pain in time
Late at night he wrote while he cried

I'm almost home, where they meet you with a smile and open arms
I'm almost home, where you never see a stranger and folks know who you are
I'm almost home, where I'll be welcomed like a star
I'll be waiting for the day and I'll be dreaming of your face
and Im almost home

She saw her father in the room
She said her time was coming soon
I couldn't see him anywhere
But I knew she saw him standing there
She was smiling up at me
She put her hand on my knee
Took a breath and closed her eyes
She was singing while I cried

I'm almost home, where my Savior waits with open arms
I'm almost home, where I'll never meet a stranger and loved ones never part
I'm almost home, where I'll be welcomed like a star
I've been waiting for the day and I've been dreaming of your face
and Im almost home
