Send My Boy Safe Home to Me.
Copyright, 1891, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by Charles F. Jerome.

There she stands by her cottage door, awaiting day by day
A letter from her darling boy, who years has been away;
he left his home when but a lad, and ran away to sea.
He had some trouble with his dad, they never could agree.
I oftimes told his father that boys when young were wild,
And that he must remember, himself was once a child;
he heeded not my pleadings, for they were all in vain,
And now I pray both night and day to see my boy again.

Then come back to your mother, come back to your dear old home,
To the scenes of happy childhood days, And ne'er again to roam;
I know God will protect you when out upon the sea,
And answer a mother's prayer-send my boy safe home to me.

Now the old home is cheerless since his dad has passed away;
There's no one left to comfort her, she's growing old and gray;
She sits beside the old grate fire, the tears bedim her eyes,
She longs to see her darling boy once more before she dies.
A tap upon the window, her heart beats fast with joy,
And as she opens the cottage door, there stands her darling boy;
Thank God! my prayer was answered, my boy is safe at home;
'Tis mother he'll ne'er leave again, this wide, wide world to roam.-Chorus.
