Collect Call

They call to me,
They woo me,
Sing like sirens
A song that draws.
Tug at my blood
Boil it hot
Sing in my ear
Whisper as I sleep.
Mountains they call
Hollers they whisper
Heat of the day
Cool of the evenin'
Callin' me home.

Appalachia callin'
Will you take the call?
Where you been, son?
Why ain't you come?
Where you been, now
Ever so long?

Wayfarin' stranger
Wanderin' in northlands
Hankerin' for home
Hankerin' for home.
