lyrics

The Birds and The Trees

The crops in the field
Keep staring at me
As if I could help them grow again

The birds and the trees
Keep whistling at me
As if they know it’s my sad song

The babes crying in their beds
They want their Daddy home
But I can’t tell them that he’s gone

All I want to do
Is sit here on this porch and sing
Baby come home, baby come home
Baby come home, ‘cause I know that you’re lost

Now the bank’s foreclosed
Taken everything I own
Even my pride they now possess

The fortune teller says
Pack your bags and go
The wheel has turned on its end

All I want to do
Is sit here on this porch and sing
Baby come home, baby come home
Baby come home, ‘cause I know that you’re lost

Baby come home,
You won’t hear me cry again or complain about
Your boots left in the rain,
Your boots left in the rain,
Your boots left in the rain

All I want to do
Is sit here on this porch and sing
Baby come home, baby come home
Baby come home, baby come home
Baby come home, ‘cause I know that you’re lost
