  Intro:         C C F         
 I was talking to a lady a few days ago
        C G 
 And these are the words she said
          C 
 If you see my child somewhere
          F C 
 As you journey here and there
                                G C 
 Tell him I'm waiting for my child to come home


         C F C 
 I am waiting and waiting for my child to come
        C F G 
 I'm waiting and waiting for my child to come
           C 
 If you can't come home
              F C 
 Could you please send me a letter
                  G C 
 A letter would mean so much to me


          C 
 Oh my child may be somewhere
               F 
 On his sick bed
          C G 
 With no one there to rub his aching head
          C 
 Oh my child may be somewhere
                   F 
 In some lonely jail
        C G C       ( G )
 With no one there to go his bail

        C F C 
 If I only knew what town my child was in
                                        G 
 I'll be there on that early morning train
          C 
 And no matter what's crime
             F C 
 Lord you know that this child is mine
                                     G C 
 That's why I'd be waiting for my child to come home


         C F C 
 I am waiting and waiting for my child to come
        C F G 
 I'm waiting and waiting for my child to come
           C 
 If you can't come home
              F C 
 Could you please send me a letter
                  G C 
 A letter would mean so much to me


         C G 
 I am waiting, waiting
        C F 
 I am waiting and waiting
        C G F C 
 I am waiting for my child to come home
