1. Coming Home


Little girl watching TV
Hears the ringing of the phone
She hears her momma talking
and she hopes it wont be long
when it's her turn to talk
the first thing she wants to know
Daddy when are you coming home?

The first thing that she'll say
when he comes home to the door
"How long are you staying?
You're not leaving anymore?"
Until that day comes
the thing she want's to know
Daddy, when are you coming home?

Gotta hide those feelings
just trying to get along
Soldier so far from home
He's trying to do his part
She's not really lonely
but she's been waiting for so long
She can't wait for him to get back home.
