Calling My Children Home 
Recorded by Emmylou Harris
Written by 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
G7 C
That one alas should go astray

Back in the years with all together
Around the place we'd romp and play
So lonely now I oft' times wonder
G7 C
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
G7 C
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
G7 C
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
G7 C
In that great glad here after life

Repeat #3
