Lonesome Old Home

print

Last night I laid down everything was so fine
Had mother and dad so much on my mind
Thinking of home and the ones I love so
Everything was so great around the old home

   Then I woke up I was a dreaming
   No mother no dad no children a playing
   Everything was so quiet everybody was gone
   There was nothing left but a lonesome old home

Then I got up the sun was so bright
I looked all around but something’s not right
I walked out the door and there on a hill
Stood two lonesome graves Lord it gave me a chill

As I stood there everything was so still
As I started to leave those lonesome old hills
Leaving behind where I used to roam
Momma and dad and a lonesome old home
