Description
This song is traditionally played by the bagpipes, often at funerals for law enforcement officers. I attended such a funeral a few months ago and was inspired to record this. I intend to release it as a CD single to raise money for the fallen officer's children's scholarship fund.

Lyrics
Going Home

Going home, going home
I am going home
Quiet like, some still day
I am going home
It's not far, just close by
Through an open door
Work all done, care laid by
Going to fear no more
Mother's there expecting me
Father's waiting, too
Lots of folk gathered there
All the friends I knew
All the friends I knew
I'm going home
Nothing's lost, all's gain
No more fret nor pain
No more stumbling on the way
No more longing for the day
Going to roam no more
Morning star lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadows gone, break of day
Real life begun
There's no break, there's no end
Just a living on
Wide awake with a smile
Going on and on
Going home, going home
I'm just going home
It's not far, just close by
Through an open door
I am going home
I'm just going home
Going home, going home

That's a fine
performance. I hope you are able to raise money for the fallen officer's children.
