Homecoming Recorded by Bobby Bare Written by Tom T. Hall
C C7 I guess I should have written dad to let you know that I was coming home F But I've been gone so many years I didn't realize you had a phone C C7 I saw your cattle coming in and boy they're looking mighty fat and slick F G7 C I saw Fred at the service station he told me that his wife was awful sick
C7 You heard my record on the radio oh well it's just another song F But I've got a hit recorded dad it'll be out on the market 'fore too long C C7 Oh I got this ring in Mexico you know it didn't cost me quite a bunch F G7 C When you're in the business that I'm in the people call it putting up a front
C7 I know I've lost a little weight and I guess I'm a looking kinda pale F If you didn't know me better Dad you'd think that I've just gotten out of jail C C7 No we don't ever call 'em beer joints night clubs are the places where I work F G7 C You meet a lotta people there but no there ain't much chance of getting hurt
C7 I'm sorry that I couldn't be here with you all when momma passed away F I was on the road and when they came and told me it was just too late C C7 I drove by the grave to see her and boy that really is a pretty stone F G7 C I'm glad that Fred and Jan are here it's better than you being here alone
C7 I knew you's gonna ask me who the lady is who's sleeping in the car F That's just the girl that works for me and man she plays a pretty mean guitar C C7 We worked in San Antone last night she didn't even have the time to dress C G7 C She drove me in from Nashville and to tell the truth I guess she needs the rest
C7 Well dad I gotta go we got a dance to work in Cartersville tonight F Let me take your number down I'll call you and I promise you I'll write C C7 Now you be good and don't be chasing all those pretty women that you know C G7 C And by the way if you see Barbara Walker tell her that I said hello
