COMING HOME FROM MEETING.
Copyright, 1884, by Wm A. Pond & Co.
Words by Edward Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

Coming home from meeting on last Sunday eve.
As happy as a bumble bee,
Wid Jane and Aunt Eliza, Lucas, John and Steve,
A-singing in de key of C;
Down by the cross-roads, close to the mound,
We had for to stand right still;
Oh, it's coming home from meeting, how we hug de ground.
And listen to de whippoorwill.

Chorus.
Whippoorwill, whippoorwill, whippoorwill.
Oh, it's birdie on de tree-top gazing all around.
And colored people climbing up a hill;
Oh, it's coming home from meeting, how we hug de ground,
And listen to de whippoorwill.

Toady in de footpath, hopping mighty soon,
A-hearing of de footsteps fall;
Oh, just behind de black clouds comes along de moon,
It is a lonely road for all;
Down by the brook side, turn right around,
For their stands the old windmill;
Oh, it's coming home from meeting, how we hug de ground,
And listen to de whippoorwill.-Chorus.

Sitting in de kitchen, talking very low,
A-thinking and a-making love.
We kiss and go a-hugging till a "yes" or "no"
Is spoken by a sweet, black dove;
Back log a-burning, sparks fly around.
Oh, hush, lovers, do keep still!
Oh, it's coming home from meeting, how we hug de ground,
And listen to de whippoorwill.-Chorus.
