Lights of Home

Full moon and morning star
Lead me home to my darlin'
Headlights burnin' through
Swirlin' fog an' stirred up dust
Engine thrums my impatience
Up a hill an' down the holler
Crawlin' round that tight ol' bend
Patience worn an' razor thin
Eyes a squintin' hard
Round a corner another bend
Just there now... can't you see
Through the thick an' shelterin' trees
There, just there - look right close
Oh, yes... the lights of home.
