The Go Set – A Black And White Picture lyrics

A million miles for every year that you went away,
A thousand long winters to know where you lay.
I barely remember the soldier that left me,
Alone on the docks to serve a king and his country.

You're a story untold to me, a name and a face.
A black and white picture above a fireplace.
A cross to bear just to know where you lay.
Heave away, haul away, please come back to me someday.

The soldiers returned, I remember the day.
I held mothers hand and I saw the parade.
The schoolyard, the Christmas, The birthdays alone.
These are the times that I faced on my own.

You're a story untold to me, a name and a face.
A black and white picture above a fireplace.
A cross to bear just to know where you lay.
Heave away, haul away, please come back to me someday.

Heave away, haul away, I hoped you'd come back to me some day.
I am waiting for the wind to blow, and sing heave away,
Haul away, please come back home.

A million miles for every year that you went away,
Rest in the green fields where you lay.
I'd yearn for the father that I'd never known and sing heave away,
Haul away, please come back home.
