This is one of my favorite tunes by Mary Fahl called "Going Home."  I can't seem to find anybody playing it on violin on youtube.....or anywhere else for that matter!  I would love to find the music for it!  Does anybody know of it? beg

 

One of these quiet nights, I'm going to sit down and figure this song out.  I still get chills hearing it!

 

Here's the Lyrics:

They say there's a place 
Where dreams have all gone
They never said where
But I think I know 
It;s miles through the night
Just over the dawn
On the road that will take me home

I know in my bones
I've been here before
The ground feel the same 
Though the land's been torn
I've a long way to go
The stars tell me so 
On this road that will take me home

Love waits for me 'round the bend
Leads me endlessly on
Surely sorrows shall find their end
And all our troubles will be gone
And I'll know what I've lost
And all that I've won
When the road finally takes me home

And when I pass by 
Don't lead me astray
Don't try to stop me
Don't stand in my way
I'm bound for the hills
Where cool waters flow
On this road that will take me home

Love waits for me 'round the bend
Leads me endlessly on
Surely sorrows shall find their end
And all our troubles will be gone
And we'll know what we've lost
And all that we've won
When the road finally takes me home

I'm going home
I'm going home
I'm going home

 

Going Home by Mary Fahl & Mark O'Connor, from the movie, "God's & Generals"

I just did a search and found this "how to" video and the guy wrote out his own type of music for free at this link:

YES!!!!!  Thank you Pierre!!!!  That's amazing!!!  .....the keyboard even has light up keys with notes printed on them (even without the sheet music of course!!) LOL

Think my problem when searching for it was that I kept putting Violin & Fiddle in the search box.  Youtube kept bringing up "Going Home" from Dvorak's 2nd Movement, New World Symphony.   

Funny thing is, I know that melody from someplace.  I was actually figuring out "Kelly's Irish Brigade/Lincoln & Liberty Too" and realized that I learned it a while back.  Except it was known as "Rosin The Beau!"  facepalmrofl I wonder where Going Home's from!

T'was all in good fun! hats_offcheers
