"Here I Go Again" is a song recorded by Whitesnake. Originally released on their 1982 album, Saints & Sinners, the song was re-recorded for their eponymous 1987 album Whitesnake. The 1987 version is more well known as it hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on October 10, 1987.

The song was written by lead singer, David Coverdale, and former Whitesnake guitarist, Bernie Marsden. The most notable differences between the original and revamped version are the style of the music (blues versus rock) and a slight change in the lyrics. The chorus of the original version features the lines:

"An' here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a hobo I was born to walk alone"

Whereas the newer version is:

"Like a drifter I was born to walk alone"

The change was made because even before finishing writing and recording the 1987 album, Coverdale had decided to release a new version of "Here I Go Again" as one of the singles. He was afraid an American audience might think he was singing "Like a homo, I was born to walk alone" so he changed the lyrics.
