Fields Have Turned Brown, The

I left my old home to ramble this country
My mother and dad said son don’t go wrong
Remember that God will always watch o’er you
And we will be waiting for you here at home

   Son don’t go astray was what they both told me
   Remember that love for God can be found
   But now they’re both gone this letter just told me
   For years they’ve been dead, the fields have turned brown

For many long years this world I have rambled
No thoughts of the day when I would return
Now as I go home and find no one waiting
The price I have paid to live and to learn
