Jimmy Nail – Gentle's Lament lyrics

Words and music by jimmy nail

Hey momma don't you cry for me
I'm gonna shake all the apples off of all the trees
Oh yeah, but I'm coming home

Hey baby don't you weep tonight
When I see them apples hangin' gonna take a bite
Oh yeah, but I'm coming home

Hey daddy don't you worry now
I'm gonna make every little thing right somehow
Oh yeah, I'm coming home

Hey momma don't you cry no more
You know that very soon now I'll be beyond the law
Oh yeah, I'm coming home

Hey child remember when I'm gone
I got to ride in a town car, twenty feet long
Oh yeah, I'm coming home

Hey boy you'd better get it right
When you tie that rope you'd better fix it tight
Oh yeah, I'm coming home

Hey boys you remember me
I rocked the ground. I shook the tree, but no more
I'm coming home

Hey jesus give a hand to me
I'm a two-time sinner tryin' to make it three
I'm about as bad as I can be, but I swear
I'm coming home
Oh I'm coming home
