Momma, I hear you calling tonight
Your old song calling me in for the night
In the tall grass, down from the trees where I climb
When day is gone, the birds sing their last songs in the pine

I hear your voice calling
By the back door light
It reaches as far as I roam
It's calling me all the way home
Momma
The darkness is falling so fast
Somehow I thought the day would always last
I'm afraid that I walk alone in life
Following the sound of your voice by the light

Your sweet voice is calling
By the back door light
It reaches as far as I roam
It's calling me all the way home
It's calling me all the way home
Calling me all the way home

Momma
The night is so long and so deep
Won't you stay a while- stay with me here 'till I sleep
