Ricky Skaggs — Halfway Home Cafe lyrics

I was pourin' coffee for table number one
I couldn't help but hear him what was going on
It got my attention when I heard a young man's voice
Saying sheriff I'll be going now if it's alright with you boys
Those years I spent in prison stole to much time from me
I won't waste another minute if I'm really free.
Chorus:
I'm goin' home my family's waitin' for me goin' home
I'm amazed that they still love me
They forgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown
Heaven knows I've been away to long
So now I'm going home.
A burger and a special for table number eight
I was bustin' number seven when I heard her young heart break
He told her it was over they could never meet again
That he found a taste of courage twisted on his wedding band
Her tears began to fall but they could not touch his heart
I heard him say "I'm sorry But it was all wrong from the start."
Chorus:
I'm goin' home my family's waitin' for me goin' home
I'm amazed that they still love me
They forgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown
Heaven knows I've been away to long
So now I'm going home.
There's a million other stories from the Halfway Home Cafe
It's a never ending saga and they're played out every day
But this one's finally over the foods all put away
And the coffee pot stands empty at the Halfway Home Cafe
But over in the corner at table number three
Sits a father and a runaway well it looks that way to me
I said "I hate to interrupt you but it's really gettin' late"
The young girl looked up smilin she said "Mister that's ok."
Chorus:
I'm goin' home my family's waitin' for me goin' home
I'm amazed that they still love me
They forgive me for the bitter seeds I've sown
Heaven knows I've been away to long
So now I'm going home.
Hhmmm, I'm goin' home...
