Songs of Restlessness

Songs about leaving a house and searching for a home





Bob Dylan — Green Mountain

Alters are burning; The flames far and wide; The fool has crossed over from the other side


Leonard Cohen — Going Home

Going home without my sorrow; Going home sometime tomorrow; Going home to where it’s better than before


Neil Young — Heart Of Gold

It’s these expressions I never give; That keep me searching for a heart of gold; And I’m getting old


Joan Baez — 500 Miles

If you miss the train I’m on, you will know that I am gone; You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles


John Denver — Country Roads, Take Me Home

Life is old there, older than the trees


Simon & Garfunkel — Homeward Bound

Home, where my love lies waiting; Silently for me


Eva Cassidy — Over The Rainbow

High above the chimney top; That’s where you’ll find me


Dusty Springfield — A House Is Not A Home

A chair is still a chair, even if there’s no one sitting there


Joni Mitchell — Refuse of the Roads

I was running like a white-assed deer; Running to lose the blues


Gladys Knight & The Pips — Midnight Train To Georgia

He’s leaving a life he’s come to know; He said he’s going back to find what’s left of his world


Joan Baez — Farewell Angelina

Farewell Angelina; The sky is erupting; I must go where it’s quiet
