1.

|G / C / |G / / / Well I wonder how the old folks are at home, |G / / / |C / / / I wonder if they miss me while I roam, |C / / / |G / / / I wonder if they pray - for the boy who went a-way, |A / / / |D / / And left his dear old parents all a-lone.

chorus:

/ |G / C / |G / / You could hear the cattle lowing in the lane, / |G / / / |C / / You could see the fields of blue grass where I’ve grown, / |C / / / |G / / / You could almost hear them cry - as they kissed their boy good-bye, |A / D / |G / / / | I wonder how the old folks are at home.

2.

Just a village and a homestead on the farm, And a mother’s love to shield you from all harm, A mother’s love so true a sweetheart that loves you, A village and a homestead on the farm.

chorus:
