Take Me Back to Home and Mother.
Take me back to home and mother-I am weary wandering here;
There can never be another spot on earth that is so dear.
Tho' I roam 'mid scenes of splendor, yet my heart is filled with pain,
And a longing, soft and tender, whispers, "Take me home again."
Take me back to home and mother, for my heart is filled with pain;
Take me back to home and mother, only take me back again.
Take me back to home and mother, to the happy scenes of yore,
Friends of childhood, sister, brother, long to welcome me once more.
I can hear their voices ringing in sweet memory's refrain-
To the past my heart is clinging-only take me back again. -Chorus.
Take me back to home And mother, gentle words will greet me there.
For on earth there is no other kindness like a mother's care.
Life is but a dream of pleasure, sweetest hours must turn to pain-
Home is all I have to treasure, only take me home again.-Chorus.
