Well, I'm goin' home, boys, cry'n won't make me stay
Goin' home, boys, cry'n won't make me stay
My time is up, throw these chains away

Now, when they brought me here, boys, I lost my brother, too
White folks took and shot him, was nothin' I could do
But I'm goin' home boys, cry'n won't make me stay
My time is up, throw these chains away

I heard from my mama, her letter made me cry
If she could only see me, I'm sure she'd surely die
But I'm goin' home boys, cry'n won't make me stay
My time is up, throw these chains away

Just as sure as the train, boys, rolls up in the yard
I'm gonna leave this rock pile if I have to ride the rods
I'm goin home, boys, cry'n won't make me stay
My time is up, throw these chains away.
