leadbelly – daddy i’m coming back to you lyrics

Loading...

your hair has turned to silver
i know you’re fadin’ too
daddy, dear old daddy
i’m comin’ back to you
made my boyhood happy
still i longed to roam
i’ve a-had my way, but now i’ll stay
i long for you and for home

daddy, you shared my sorrows and joys
you tried to bring me up right
but still i remember you’s a-one of the boys
now i’m starting back home tonight
your hair has turned to silver
i know you’s fadin’ too
daddy, dear old daddy
i’m comin’ back to you
made my boyhood happy
still i longed to roam
i’ve a-had my way, but now i’ll stay
i long for you and for home

[spoken] this here’s the last verse. his papa’s hair
had turned to silver.
and when he got back home: [/spoken]

i’m dreaming tonight of an old southern town
the best friend i ever had
been wonderin’ and worryin’ and rovin’ ’round
now i’m goin’ back home to my dad
your hair has turned to silver
i know you’re fading too
daddy, dear old daddy
i’m comin’ back to you
made my boyhood happy
still i longed to roam
i’ve a-had my way, but now i’ll stay
i long for you and for home
