Lyrics

WELCOME HOME, SWEET CHILD
MUSIC AND LYRICS: RICHARD HOLLEY

VERSE 1
YOU DECIDED ONE DAY TO BE ON YOUR WAY,
LEAVIN’ ALL YOUR LOVED ONES BEHIND.
AS YOU WALKED OUT THE DOOR, YOU HEARD ME SAY TO YOU ONCE MORE:
“YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME, LITTLE DARLIN’, WELCOME HOME.”

CHORUS
“WELCOME HOME, SWEET CHILD, WELCOME HOME.
I’LL BE HOPING YOU FIND YOUR WAY HOME.
YOU CAN TURN TO A FRIEND RIGHT UP TO THE VERY END,
‘CAUSE YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME, LITTLE DARLIN’, WELCOME HOME.”

VERSE 2
THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE BUILD UP A GREAT BIG WALL,
MADE OF SAD, HURT FEELINGS, NOT OF STONE.
LET’S FORGIVE ONE ANOTHER, ONCE AND FOR ALL,
‘CAUSE YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME, LITTLE DARLIN’, WELCOME HOME.

BRIDGE
I’M ALWAYS THINKING OF YOU.
I’D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR VOICE, SEE HOW YOU’RE MAKING DO.
MY HOPES AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU.
YOUR PLACE IS WAITING, I PROMISE IT’S TRUE.

VERSE
THERE’LL BE TIMES IN YOUR LIFE WHEN SOME DARKNESS MAY FALL;
JUST REMEMBER YOU’RE NEVER ALONE.
PLEASE DON’T HESITATE TO PLACE THAT CALL,
‘CAUSE YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME, LITTLE DARLIN’, WELCOME HOME.

CHORUS
“WELCOME HOME, SWEET CHILD, WELCOME HOME.
I’LL BE HOPING YOU FIND YOUR WAY HOME.
YOU CAN TURN TO A FRIEND RIGHT UP TO THE VERY END,
‘CAUSE YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME, LITTLE DARLIN’, WELCOME HOME.”

(FIDDLE INSTRUMENTAL SOLO)

CHORUS
“WELCOME HOME, SWEET CHILD, WELCOME HOME.
I’LL BE HOPING YOU FIND YOUR WAY HOME.
YOU CAN TURN TO A FRIEND RIGHT UP TO THE VERY END,
‘CAUSE YOU’RE ALWAYS WELCOME, LITTLE DARLIN’, WELCOME HOME.
SWEET CHILD WELCOME HOME; WELCOME HOME;
SWEET CHILD WELCOME HOME.”
