Calling My Children Home - Emmylou Harris

(doyle lawson/charles waller/robert yates)

Those lives were mine to love and cherish.
To guard and guide along life?s way.
Oh God forbid that one should perish.
That one alas should go astray.

Back in the years with all together,
Around the place we?d romp and play.
So lonely now and oft? times wonder,
Oh will they come back home some day.

I?m lonesome for my precious children,
They live so far away.
Oh may they hear my calling...calling..
And come back home some day.

I gave my all for my dear children,
Their problems still with love I share,
I?d brave life?s storm, defy the tempest
To bring them home from anywhere.

I lived my life my love I gave them,
To guide them through this world of strife,
I hope and pray we?ll live together,
In that great glad here after life.

I?m lonesome for my precious children,
They live so far away.
Oh may they hear my calling...calling.. and come back home some day.
