To the memory of John Howard Payne,
the author of Home Sweet Home.
A student at Union College in the Class of 1810.
'Mid the pleasures and palaces
Though I 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 thro' the world
Is never met elsewhere
Home! Home! Sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home.
There's no place like home.

An exile from home,
Splendor dazzles in vain.
Oh! Give me my lowly
Thatch'ed cottage again;
The birds singing gaily
That come at my call-
Give me them, with the peace
Of mind dearer than all.
Home Sweet Home
Home! Home! Sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home.
There's no place like home.

How sweet 'tis to sit 'neath
A fond father's smile.
And the cares of a mother
To sooth and beguile.
Let others delight 'mid new pleasures to roam.
But give me Oh! Give me
The pleasures of home!
Home Sweet Home
Home! Home! Sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home.
There's no place like home.

To thee I'll return.
Over-burdened with care.
The heart's dearest solace
Will smile some there.
No more from that cottage
Again will I



roam.
Be it ever so humble.
There's no place like home.
Home! Home! Sweet, sweet home!
There's no place like home.
There's no place like home.John Howard PayneMDCCCXIII
