Home, Sweet Home in a Brick Farm House

Home Sweet Home
By John Howard Payne

‘Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home;
A charm from the sky seems to hallow us there,
Which seek through the world, is ne’er met with elsewhere.
Home, Home, sweet, sweet Home!

An exile from home, splendor dazzles in vain;
O, give me my lowly thatched cottage again!
The birds singingly gaily, that came to my call –
Give me them – and the peace of mind, dearer than all.

Home, Home sweet, sweet Home.
There’s no place like Home! 

There’s no place like Home!


AVR and children play Home Sweet Home.  Music by Henry Rowley Bishop (1786-1855)
(Arranged for the violin and piano by Henry Farmer)
