Mama’s been gone for a week or so

I hope she comes home soon

The girls come in and they treat me good

But I hope she comes home soon

Because my body’s aching and my body’s tired

Although the sun caresses my back

I like the gritty earth up against my skin

In the corner of the garden

 

Come on home mama, please come home

I’m hanging by a thread and I don’t have long

The spirit is willing but the body’s almost gone

Come on home mama, hurry home

I’m hanging by a thread and I don’t have long

I’m waiting for you so I can say my last goodbye

Before returning to the Garden

 

My mama’s voice is on the end of the line

From four thousand miles away

I held on as long as I could

but I don’t have another day

 

It’s been a sweet life, it was a gift bestowed

But the time has come for me to lay down my load

The price of love is your heart cracked open wide

But have faith now, mama, that the spirit abides

And I’ll find you on the other side

And in the meantime you know where to find me…

In the corner of the garden

 

A year has come and a year has gone

His spirit breathes as I sing his song

The corn grows high and vine tendrils long

In his corner of the garden.

 

It was a sweet life, it was a gift bestowed

But the time had come for him to lay down his load

The price of love is my heart cracked open wide

Oh but I’ll try to have faith that the spirit abides

And I’ll find him on the other side

And in the meantime he knows where to find me…

In his corner of the garden
