When I Get Home
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Anders Parker

Well, I been around this world a million times
And I fought in all the fox holes and the lines
I have rode every ship that rides the foam
And I know just what I’ll do when I get home.

CHORUS:
Yes, I know just what I’ll do when I get home.
And I know just what I’ll do when I get home.

I lifted and I carried and I hauled
I answered all the bugles and the calls
And at every sinking of the sun
I thought of what I’ll do when I get home.

Yes, I know just what I’ll do when I get home.
And I know just what I’ll do when I get home.
I’m gonna keep my fires burning
I’m gonna keep my wheels a turning
I’m gonna keep my people free when I get home.

I lifted your shells and dropped your bombs.
Saw this town and other towns blowed down.
I talked to every Joe in the kingdom come
Told him everything I’ll do when I get home.

Yes, I know just what I’ll do when I get home.
And I know just what I’ll do when I get home.
I’m gonna keep my fires burning
I’m gonna keep my wheels a turning
I’m gonna keep my people free when I get home.
