​Daddy I'm Coming Back to You

This song is by Lead Belly and appears on the album Leadbelly Vol. 1 (1939-1940) (2005).

Your hair has turned to silver
I know you're fadin' too
Daddy, dear old Daddy
I'm comin' back to you
Made my boyhood happy
Still I longed to roam
I've a-had my way, but now I'll stay
I long for you and for home

Daddy, you shared my sorrows and joys
You tried to bring me up right
But still I remember you's a-one of the boys
Now I'm starting back home tonight
Your hair has turned to silver
I know you's fadin' too
Daddy, dear old Daddy
I'm comin' back to you
Made my boyhood happy
Still I longed to roam
I've a-had my way, but now I'll stay
I long for you and for home

Spoken: This here's the last verse. His Papa's hair had turned to silver And when he got back home

I'm dreaming tonight of an old Southern town
The best friend I ever had
Been wonderin' and worryin' and rovin' 'round
Now I'm goin' back home to my Dad
Your hair has turned to silver
I know you're fading too
Daddy, dear old Daddy
I'm comin' back to you
Made my boyhood happy
Still I longed to roam
I've a-had my way, but now I'll stay
I long for you and for home
