Reel 289, Item 4
Out in this cold world and far away from home Somebody’s boy is wandering alone No one to guide him or keep his footsteps right Somebody’s boy is homeless tonight.
Out in the hall way there sits a vacant chair And there's the shoes he once used to wear There is the cradle he once loved so well Oh how I miss him no one can tell.
Can I forget him or cease to hold him dear He is my boy as when he once was here Though he has wandered in darkness and in sin Bring him home I'll welcome him in.
Bring back to me my wandering boy For there's no other that's left to give me joy There is no other to hold to my breast Gladly I'd close my eyes and be at rest.
For there's no other that's left to give me joy Bring back to me my wandering boy.
