I Wonder How the Old Folks Are at Home

Well I wonder how the old folks are at home,
|G / / / |C / / /
I wonder if they miss me while I roam,
|C / / / |G / / /
I wonder if they pray - for the boy who went a-way,
|A / / / |D / /
And left his dear old parents all a-lone.
/ |G / C / |G / /
You could hear the cattle lowing in the lane,
/ |G / / / |C / /
You could see the fields of blue grass where I’ve grown,
/ |C / / / |G / / /
You could almost hear them cry - as they kissed their boy good-bye,
|A / D / |G / / / |
I wonder how the old folks are at home.
Just a village and a homestead on the farm,
And a mother’s love to shield you from all harm,
A mother’s love so true a sweetheart that loves you,
A village and a homestead on the farm.
