Papa's Home
Lyrics transcribed by: Brian Whitman
Music transcribed by: Pete Millett
Main Chords:
[D]: xx0230 [Bb]: x13311 [A]: x02220 [C]: x32010 [F]: 133211

Chorus:
[Dm9]: x57755   [Cm9]: x35533

Verse 1:
D                  C
Papa's hitting the road again
          Bb         C           A
Takes the show cross-country for hire
        D
And the crowds come and go
       F
Secret agents getting bigger
C
Mom's holding sister in the chair
                 Bb
Turning pages of photographs
Warm in their memories
                      Dm9
Falling asleep by the fire

Verse 2:
To the highway where some new cowboys go
Drivers and drifters and rouges
And the crew's still working
Everybody's cracking jokes
Morning comes so easy
Sharing stories and forgetting time
Take the rest in the look in her eyes
As they go and close time

Chorus:
Dm9                     Cm9
Papa's driving past the night
     Dm9                        Cm9
He's working his way to make it home
    Dm9                 Cm9
The old man gonna be outside
                 Dm9                    Cm9
When the morning come, when the morning comes

Verse 3:
To the highway where some old cowboys go
Drivers and drifters and rouges
Some drink here, some dance here
Hear old big boy telling jokes
Mom's holding sister in the chair
Sharing stories and forgetting time
Warm in their memories of
Falling asleep by the fire

Chorus/Bridge:
Papa's he driving past the night
He's working his way to make it home
The old man gonna be a sight
When the morning come, when the morning comes
Papa's coming home
Papa's coming home

Papa coming home...



Christmas (original) lyrics:

Verse 1: Papa's hittin' the road again Takes his show cross-ountry for hire. As the snow keeps fallin' down, Frosty's gettin' bigger, Mom's holding sister by the fire Turning pages of photographs. Warming their memories of Christmas past by the fire. Verse 2: To the North Pole where some young wishes go, Santa's bride mends his coat, keeps him warm. And the elves are very handy, They're always crackin' jokes, But no one makes her laugh so easy, Tellin' stories and forgettin' time. Take a look at the rest in her eyes And never grow tired. Chorus: Papa's driving past the night He's working his way to make it home The old man gonna be outside When the morning come, when the morning comes Verse 3: Papa's hittin' the roof again Hanging stars with a hammer and wire. As the snow keeps fallin' down, Frosty's gettin' fatter, Mom's holding sister by the fire Turning pages of photographs. Warming their memories and falling asleep by the fire. (Chorus)
