Recorded by Jim Reeves
Written by Roger Miller
[C]Well I’ve been a traveler [F]most of my [C]life
[G7]Never took a home [C]never took a wife
Ran away young and [F]decided to [C]roam
Wanna see my mama and my [G7]daddy back [C]home
[F]Home where the [C]river runs cold
The [G7]water tastes good the [C]winters ain’t cold
[F]Home where trees grow [C]tall
The home [G7]fires burn and the whippoorwills [C]call
I remember stories that my [F]daddy used to [C]tell
[G7]My eyes would get big and his [C]chest would really swell
I could sit for hours and [F]listen with [C]glee
As he’d tell of how he lived when [G7]he was a boy like [C]me
Well mama dear mama do you [F]still love your [C]boy
[G7]After all my roaming can I [C]still bring you joy
Mom sent a letter got [F]it not long [C]ago
She said come home [G7]I’m a missing you [C]so
[G7]Whippoorwills [C]call [G7]whippoorwills [C]call[/chordpress]
