The Mississippiís down the block and around the corner
That old lakeís just a couple miles from here
Spent my youth with a fishing pole wish I was there today
They built a casino where my friends and I used to play
So much has changed and so much remains the same
Itís where memories are made

 At Home down by the river
 At Home they find a way
 At Home itís so familiar
 At Home is where Iíll stay

Down the block lived a girl name Georgia
She donít know it but she really turned me on
Across the way lived old man Carter
He fought three wars then cancer took his arm
So many people have come and gone but I tell you
So many more of them stayed

               (Chorus)

Pedal steel solo (featuring Dwight Breland)

Been five years since the levees broke
Tried to wash this place away
But home is more than where you hang your hat
If you ainít here I hope youíll find your way

 Back home down by the river
 At Home they find a way
 At Home itís so familiar
 At Home is where Iíll stay
