JUST TO BE AT HOME.
Copyright, 1892, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by Julian Jordan. As sung by Frederick W. Carberry.
Just to hear the dear home voices, just to be at that loved place;
Just to see the smile of welcome that will gladden ev'ry face
When those eyes so fondly watching once again are turned on me;
When shall come that day of meeting-happy I shall be.
Just to see thee, oh! my darling, just to look into your eyes;
Just to tell again the story of the love that never dies.
Just to see thee, oh! my darling, just to hold thee to my heart;
Just again to meet And greet thee, never more to part.
Just again to see my baby, just to kiss my little one;
Just to hold her in these strong arms, as I oft before have done.
Just to hear her calling "Pupa!" as she sees me homeward come-
Oh! I'd give the world this moment just to be at home!
