Come Home is the third track on Mavis Staples' first Paisley Park Records album Time Waits For No One. In 1994 it was included as the third and final track on a European version of The Voice, the first single from her second Paisley Park Records album The Voice. In 1995 it was included as the eighth track on a re-issue of the album The Voice (the only track to be added to the re-issue).

While specific recording dates are not known, basic tracking for Prince's original version took place in January 1987, at Prince's Galpin Blvd Home Studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as La, La, La, He, He, Hee). The song was originally intended for African American R&B singer Meli'sa Morgan, but it is not known if Prince submitted the song to her for her use. Prince revised the song in late June 1988, at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota (during the same set of sessions as recording Time Waits For No One and revising I Guess I'm Crazy and Train). The song was then sent (along with Time Waits For No One, I Guess I'm Crazy and Train) to Mavis Staples in Memphis, TN, USA, where she recorded lead vocal overdubs with producers Al Bell, Homer Banks and Lester Snell at Ardent Studios.
