Be Home Early To-Night, My Dear Boy
As Sung by Johnny Gibbons.

I have traveled through life, I have seen many things
That surprised me in every form;
I have been at the plow, I have been at the spade
Till dark, and-at sunrise in the morn;
But at night I would go for some pleasure through town-
I was always for pleasure and joy,
My mother would say, when going away,
Be home early to-night, my dear boy.

Be home early to-night, my dear boy;
Be home early to-night, my dear boy;
Don't spend all your money to gamble and drink;
Be home early to-night, my dear boy.

One night I left home, and poor mother was sick,
In fever of torture and pain;
She says, "My dear boy, take the motto I give,
I may not give it to you again."
But when I returned from my night's fun and joy,
I heard my poor mother was dead;
'Twas then a cold chill through my body did run.
When I thought of the last words she said.-Chorus.

All young men that are here, take a word of advice:
To your father and mother attend,
For a good mother's love it must not be forgot-
When she's gone you've lost your l>est friend.
Don't spend all your money to gamble and drink,
There are many things you can enjoy;
Take the lesson I give-'twas a mother's request-
Keep good hours at night, my dear boys.-Chorus.
