Lyrics

 
In a hotel room in Memphis, on the wrong side of the tracks
A girl sits alone with her empty whiskey glass
In her mind a soft voice says, it’s time to go back home
With aching heart and trembling hand, she dials the telephone
 
COME ON HOME, we’ve been praying you’d come back to us someday
COME ON HOME, we’ve been searching ever since you went away
COME ON HOME, we still love you…no need to feel alone
COME ON HOME, CHILD, COME ON HOME!
 
He was almost sixteen, thought he was grown
Packed his bags late one night, and ran away from home
That was seven years ago, now thru his bitter tears
He sees the old front door fly open, these are the words he hears
 
COME ON HOME, we’ve been praying you’d come back to us someday
COME ON HOME, we’ve been searching ever since you went away
COME ON HOME, we still love you…no need to feel alone
COME ON HOME, CHILD, COME ON HOME!
 
In an empty, rundown church, in a bad part of town
And old man bows his head, and lays his burdens down
I’ve wasted many years, in sin I lost my way
I’m not worthy of your love, Lord, forgive me now, I pray
 
COME ON HOME, I’ve been hoping you’d come back to us someday
COME ON HOME, I’ve been waiting ever since you went away
COME ON HOME, I still love you…no need to feel alone
COME ON HOME, CHILD, COME ON HOME!

 

COME ON HOME, I’ve been hoping you’d come back to us someday
COME ON HOME, I’ve been waiting ever since you went away
COME ON HOME, I still love you…no need to feel alone
COME ON HOME, CHILD, COME ON HOME!
