My friends all say what a pity that you've been gone so long
Wonder how you are in the city oh honey won't you please come home
The cotton and the corn have been gathered the green green pastures are gone
The day looks like stormy weather honey won't you please come home mhm
[ piano ]
The whippoorwills have started calling the night winds whisper a song
Soon the tears will be falling oh honey won't you please come home
Soon the snow will be falling down comes teardrops and moan
I miss the sound of your calling oh honey won't you please come home mhm
