"Home Cookin'" as written by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston....
(Home cookin', home cookin')

Oh woe is me, what goes with me
I hate this livin' I've chose for me

Tired of meetin' misery
Should've never roamed and left that

Home cookin', home cookin'
Life is cruel, I was a fool to roam

I climb this hill, I try this dale
And then I step on a rusty nail

Never even get no mail
She's so far from all that goes with

Home cookin', home cookin'
I'm afraid I shoulda stayed at home

(With a porch light, screen door
Banner from Niagara falls
Green grass, lawn mower
"Home, sweet home" upon the walls)

That home cookin', home cookin'
Quiet life is quite the life for me

I meet a guy, his name is Al
I wanna keep him in my corral
But he says he's just a pal
Never comes around to try my
Home cookin', home cookin'
Life is cruel, I was a fool to roam

When I go out, the sun goes in
The rain comes down and it soaks my skin
Jonah is my next o' kin
Darn the luck I shoulda stuck with
Home cookin', home cookin'
I'm afraid I shoulda stayed at home

(With a cricket chattin'
Summer nights you sit on the lawn
Dog wants pattin'
Nine o'clock you start to yawn

That's home cookin', home cookin'
Quiet life is quite the life for me

Rock of Ages on the organ
Thanksgivin' every day

Be it ever so humble
Give me that home cookin', home cookin'
And I'll never go away

My ticket calls for Jasper Falls
I'm headin' home and I'm gonna stay!
