The Coming Home Of The Son and Brother
By Robert Earl Keen

Capo 2

Time for the singer
Time for the singer boy to make his way back home
A prodigal Iíve been distressed
This lonely child canít make it on his own
          F                C
Iíve been traveling states away
          Am                     C
Iíve been playing in a bluegrass band
Now itís the coming home 
       G                C
Of the son and brother again

Time has slipped away
I donít know if I can play another tune
They want me to build single handed
A road up to the moon
They only pay me nickels and dimes
In a game that I can never win
So itís the coming home
Of the son and brother again

Itís been a long long time
Since Iíve seen all of my family and friends
I want to hear them tell their stories
Tell Ďem all about the places I have been
So open all your doors up wide
Invite all the neighbors in
For the coming home
Of the son and brother again
