CALLING ME HOME
Patty Griffin


Momma, I hear you calling tonight

your old song calling me in for the night

in the tall grass, down from the trees where I climb

when day is gone, the birds sing their last songs in the pine


I hear your voice calling

by the back door light

it reaches as far as I roam

it's calling me all the way home

Momma

The darkness is falling so fast

Somehow I thought the day would always last

I'm afraid that I walk alone in life

Following the sound of your voice by the light


Your sweet voice is calling

by the back door light

It reaches as far as I roam

It's calling me all the way home

It's calling me all the way home

Calling me all the way home


Momma

The night is so long and so deep

Won't you stay a while- stay with me here 'till I sleep
