My father told me always be strong son
Don't you ever cry
You find the pretty girls and then you love them
Then you say goodbye
I never dreamed that you would leave me
But now you're gone, gone gone
I never dreamed that I would miss you
Woman won't you come back home
Back home

I never dreamed that you could hurt me
And leave me blue
I've had a thousand, maybe more
But never one like you
I never dreamed I could feel so empty
But now I'm down, down down
I never dreamed that I would beg you
Woman I need you now
I need you now

It seems to me that I took your love for granted
Oh oh yeah
It feels to me that this time I was wrong, so wrong
Oh Lord now I feel so lonely, yeah
Woman won't you come back home

I tried to do what my father taught me
But I think he knew
Someday that I would find one woman like you
I never dreamed that it could feel so good, Lord
That two could be one
I never knew about sweet love, Lord
Woman won't you come back home
Back home

    General CommentIf it makes you feel any better, these lyrics aren't all that great. Check out Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" or Jeff Buckley's cover. Even if the music's not your thing, the lyrics are great.

    General CommentThe lyrics on this one are just kind of ho-hum, but the music and presentation are great. Seldom is a cover song better than the original, but this one blows Skynyrd's out of the water. The guitar is particularly amazing, even by Zakk's standards.

    As far as the meaning of the song goes, it's pretty straight forward. He learned at an early age to never get too close to the ladies...just find 'em, have your fun with them, then get the hell out of dodge. But, he fucked around and fell in love with one, and she's the one who bailed on him. Now he's realizing that he never once imagined that he would find himself feeling this way about a woman and now that she's gone, he wants her back...all the others he had were just insignificant compared to this one, but she's gone for good.
