Bobby Bare (born Robert Joseph Bare on April 7, 1935 in Ironton, Ohio) is an American country music singer and songwriter. In the fifties after many failed attempts to sell his songs, he finally was signed up with Capitol Records and recorded a few rock and roll songs without much chart success. Just before he was drafted into the Army, he wrote a song called 'The All American Boy' and did a demo for his friend, Bill Parsons, to learn and record it. Instead of using the version Bill Parsons did later, the record company, Fraternity Records, decided to use the original demo done by Bobby Bare.

- LyricsI'm 500 miles away from home
Teardrops fell on mama's note
When I read the things she wrote
She said, "We miss you son
We love you, come on home"
- LyricsI wanna go home
I wanna go home
Ohh how I wanna go home
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit city
And I dreamed about those cotton fields and home
- LyricsI sold the farm to take my woman where she longed to be
We left our kin and all our friends back there in Tennessee
I bought those one way tickets she had often begged me for
And they took us to the streets of Baltimore
Her heart was filled with laughter when she saw those city lights
