Recorded by The Stanley Brothers
Written by Carter Stanley
[C]I left my old home to ramble this country
My mother and [F]dad said son don’t go [C]wrong
Remember that [F]God will always watch [C]over you
And we will be [G7]waiting for you here at [C]home
Son don’t go [F]astray was what they both [C]told me
Remember that [G7]love for God can be [C]found
But now they’re both [F]gone this letter just [C]told me
For years they’ve been [G7]dead
The fields have turned [C]brown
For many long years I’ve traveled in sorrow
No thought of the [F]day when I would [C]return
Now as I come [F]home and find no one [C]waiting
The price I have [G7]paid to live and to [C]learn
