THE ESSENTIAL BLUEGRASS ALBUM - I WONDER HOW THE OLD FOLKS ARE AT HOME lyrics

I WONDER HOW THE OLD FOLKS ARE AT HOME

(A.P. Carter, M. Christian)

-Solo-

Well, I wonder how the old folks are at home
I wonder if they miss me while I roam
I wonder if they pray for the boy who went away
And left his dear old parents all alone

You could hear the cattle lowing in the lane
You could see the fields of bluegrass where I roamed
You could almost hear them cry as they kissed their boy good-bye
Well, I wonder how the old folks are at home

-Solo-

Just a village and a homestead on the farm
And a mother's love to shield you from all harm
A mother's love so true, sweetheart brave and true
A village and a homestead on the farm

You could hear the cattle lowing in the lane
You could see the fields of bluegrass where I roamed
You could almost hear them cry as they kissed their boy good-bye
Well, I wonder how the old folks are at home

-Solo-

You could hear the cattle lowing in the lane
You could see the fields of bluegrass where I roamed
You could almost hear them cry as they kissed their boy good-bye
Well, I wonder how the old folks are at home
