  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
