Take Me Home

Take Me Home

Sue Hammond, c. 1982

1. I've traveled these miles through dozens of smiles'
   Never wanting a man or a home.
   Then you came along, and in less than a song
   The seeds of love you had sown.

Chorus:
   Take me home, where the black bird sings by your door
   I won't ask any more
   And I'm so tired of living alone.
   Take me home, where the black bird sings by your door
   I won't ask any more
   And I'm so tired of living alone.

2. I knew from the start you'd be breaking my heart,
   It's a traveling life that we lead.
   Now are games at a draw, 'cause you know that I saw
   In you, a reflection of me.

3. I won't ask you to stay as you go on your way,
   But there's one thing I want you to know,
   When you are weary, and your days are too dreary,
   You can come back to me and I'll say:

  Sue  Hammond is a former member of the all-women Bosom  Buddies
Stringband,  taught this to Sally Rogers while living in a teepee
of her own construction in Bath,  MI. Shortly thereafter, she was
found riding a motorcycle built for two across the Sahara Desert.
She now makes her home in Galway in Ireland. (1984)
From Sally Rogers album, 1984
