When I was just a boy
The devil took my hand
Took me from my home
He made me a man
So, don't talk to me about sympathy now
Cause you can't dance if you
Take a chance on your rosary

I'm going down, down, down, down, down
On the homebound train

It's been a millions years
That I been gone
I been everywhere, now I'm heading home
Been a lot of girls, but
There's a woman I know
Said don't take no plane
Better take a train
Cause I like it real slow

All the way back home
On the homebound train
I'm going down, down, down, down, down
On the homebound train

I'm on my way
I'm heading home
To be with my baby
Where I belong
Coming down the tracks now
See, I done my time
I'm going back now
To that home of mine
Well, here I come baby

Here I come baby
Here I come baby

All the way back home
On that homebound train
I'm going down, down, down, down, down
On that homebound train

    General CommentThis track to me is probably the most Un-Bon Jovi song ever. It's cool but the sound is different. Not much meaning to the song. I think it's just about sex.

    General CommentSame here...I think it is about sex...not one of their best songs.
    But the solo still kicks ass...

    General CommentActually I think it's obvious that the the song refers to Jon's decision to settle down, to make a home with his "baby where he belongs".
    I agree it has a lot of "sympathy" and Stones or even Zeppelin. I used to like it more in the past.
