The Homestead on the Farm

The Homestead on the Farm

        G
Well I wonder how the old folks are at home
   G                                C
I wonder if they'll miss me when I'm gone
   C               G
I wonder if they pray
         G
For the boy who went away
     A                            D
And left his dear old parents all alone

REFRAIN:
             G               C             G
Now you can hear the cattle lowing in the lane
        G                                  C
You can almost see the fields of bluegrass green
        C                  G
You can almost hear them cry
         G
As they kissed their boy goodbye
   A             D7                G
I wonder how the old folks are at home

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