I just started singing
I didn't know the tune
I finally left the city
I'm a-going to make it back home by June
Upon my late arrival, by the moon light I could see
The the place I left so long ago
Still looked the same to me

And the flowers still alongside
Buttermilk Grove
And something in the air tells me
The corn has just been sowed
I've been on my last subway,
No more neon signs algow
Oh, I'm headed home to Buttermilk Grove

The sign above the general store
Tells me I'm not alone
And the number written on the wall
Right above the telephone
Will bring my family running
Whether they be young or old
Janey's headed home to Buttermilk Grove

There stands my lady
I missed that woman so
She's coming here to kiss me
I can feel her right through her clothes
Yeah, she looks as good as ever
If not better than my dreams
Aw, it must have been a fever
Made me leave her, that's what it seems

So tonight I'll pick my banjo
It's been so long since I've played
And my lady, she just loves it
At least, that's what she'll say
I'll beat it til my fingers bleed
Until the neck is bowed
Oh, I'm headed home to Buttermilk Grove

And the flowers still alongside
Buttermilk Grove
And something in the air tells me
The corn has just been sowed
I've been on my last subway,
No more neon signs algow
Oh, I'm headed home to Buttermilk Grove
