Lyrics

Come On Home

I was only three years old when my Daddy left home
All Mama said was that he had a travelin' bone
He would come `round to see us from time to time
All that I knew was that he made the sun to shine

Mamma never got a minutes rest
(we) never had much of nothing' but you know that she did her best
Late at night when she was all alone
I could hear her cryin' on the telephone

Chorus:
When you gonna come on home?
You been gone away too long
You don't write, and you never phone
But that's alright if you come on home

Sweet chidhood turned out to be a fast ride
I grew up lean and hungry on the southside
Took a wrong turn to a life of crime
Took a hard fall and I lost some time

Chorus:
When you gonna come on home?
You been gone away too long
You don't write, and you never phone
But that's alright if you come on home

Bridge:
Now I ain't blaming nobody
I ain't pointing' a finger at you
But if there's just one thing I learned about life
You do what you got to do

I guess peaches don't fall too far from the tree
When I look in the mirror I see a whole lot of Daddy in me
I spend a lot of time on the telephone
Talkin' to a family of my own

Chorus:
When you gonna come on home?
You been gone away too long
You don't write, and you never phone
But that's alright if you come on home
