I left home, to fight off the slavery

Now you’re having a baby and it ain’t mine

Now I’m back home, though I died in the trenches

And I don’t know what this is, I thought you were mine

You left home, been gone for so long now

Had to get along somehow, oh how I’ve tried

You’re back home, but now things are different

And I feel just as distant, as when you were gone

Come back, come back, come back, come back home

All this fear and death I’ve shouldered on my own

I’ve been, I’ve been, I’ve been, so alone

So come back home

In my hands is a dead man’s rifle and he’s clinching a bible while saying a prayer

A shot rang out, now his life is over and I’m suddenly sober at what I’ve become

My father died a victim of murder and no one thought further To how I’d get by

Now I’ve grown with nothing for family and it ain’t how it should be
Cause you took a life
