    (Jan Howard)

    My son, my son, I pray that you'll come home
    To me, my son, my son.

    It seems only yesterday
    The most important thing on your mind
    Was whether you'd make the baseball team
    Or get the new school jacket like all the other kids had.

    And I remember how your eyes lighted up
    When you got your first rod and reel
    For that big fishing trip just you and your dad
    And I remember wiping the tears away
    When you hurt yourself on your sled.

    In those days it seems the house
    Was filled with laughter and joy
    Filled with your friends
    And they were all such good boys.

    And then came the day that you walked down the aisle
    To receive that all important diploma
    I was so proud but I couldn't believe
    That tall young man was, my son, my wonderful son.

    And then I remember the little girl
    that was always around kinda tagging after you
    She's not so little anymore but she's still around
    Who knows maybe someday.

    Then you received the call
    That I guess we knew would come someday
    But it came so quick and now you're so very far away
    In the land that until a short time ago I didn't even know was there.

    I know the time will pass you'll be home again
    But until that time my darling take care take special care
    My son, my son, I pray that you'll come home
    To me, my son, my son...
