"Come on Home Boy" as written by and Howard/ ...
He got a letter saying guess you don't remember me
But I'm the girl that you courted before you ran away to sea
You never even wrote a letter even to your mom and dad
Now it's too late to write your daddy and your mama's feeling mighty bad
Won't you come on home boy come on home boy
Your mama's all alone since your dad's been gone
Well come on home boy come on home boy
Your mama's mighty blue from missing you

Well he caught him a train up in Frisco headin' back to Tennessee
Thinking of a mom and daddy that used to rock him on their knees
No more fishing in the creek with daddy no huntin' when the leaves turn brown
Every turn of the wheel seemed to tell him son you gone and let us down
Won't you come on home boy

He walked up to the cabin as it was gettin' dark
So blue by the doorstep wondered why he didn't bark
He called but nobody answered he looked around and then he cried
Underneath the weeping willow were two crosses side by side
Won't you come on home boy
Yeah your mama's mighty blue from missing you
