Oh Shepherd, Oh Shepherd or the Sheep Are in the Wilderness

Oh Shepherd, Oh Shepherd or the Sheep Are in the Wilderness

Oh shepherd, oh shepherd will you come home
Will you come home, will you come home?
Oh shepherd, oh shepherd will you come home
To your breakfast in the morning

What have you got for my breakfast...
If I do come home this morning?

Bacon and beans, a bellyful...
If you do come home this morning

My sheep they are all in the wilderness...
So I cannot come home this morning

Oh shepherd, oh shepherd will you come home...
To your dinner this morning
What have you got for my dinner
If I do come home this morning

Pudding and beef, a bellyful
If you do come home this morning

My sheep they are all in the wilderness
So I cannot come home this morning

Oh shepherd, oh shepherd will you come home
To your supper tonight

What have you got for my supper
If I do come home tonight

Bread and cheese, a bellyful
If you do come home tonight
My sheep they are all in the wilderness
So I cannot come home tonight

Oh shepherd, oh shepherd will you come home
To your lodging tonight

What have you got for my lodgings
If I do come home tonight

A clean pair of sheets and a pretty lass
If you do come home tonight

Oh, I'll drive my sheep out of the wilderness
And I will come home tonight
