The origins of ‘Home sweet Home’
“Home Sweet Home” was a popular song for over 150 years. It was adapted from American actor and dramatist John Howard Payne’s 1823 opera Clari, or the Maid of Milan, the song’s melody was composed by Englishman Sir Henry Bishop with lyrics by Payne.
The song lyrics are:
Mid pleasures and palaces though we may roam,
Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home;
A charm from the skies seems to hallow us there,
Which seek thro’ the world, is ne’er met elsewhere.
Sweet, sweet home!
There’s no place like home
There’s no place like home!
