Well it took us by surprise when He came home and told us He just joined the army Mama cried and left the room Like Mama's do and simply said "You should have warned me” Daddy threw his arms around his neck Said "Don't mind her you know She really loves you.” Then he shook his hand and said "My friend I think you'll make one hell of a soldier.” Things remain the same until The day he had to leave As we waved goodbye mama said to me He's coming home Out front of that bus depot We all watched his arm Reach out the window Giving us the peace sign, oh God we hate to watch him go But no matter how far apart we are We know He's coming home A mama's premonition There ain't nothing like it We all watched in anger As the newsman forced a smile And warned the country That we all love is now in danger Mama's baby went from boot camp drills To standing in a field holding a rifle His mind shifts from army grants To finish school and be someone To mere survival With each letter that he sent Before we read it We all prayed it would be the one to tell us He's coming home Mama read each and every one As we passed around the latest picture Of him giving us the peace sign, oh He'd been the same since he's been gone But no matter how far apart we are We know He's coming home As the war dust slowly disappeared We all sat in fear And feared the worst Til the moment that phone rang And he asked if he could talk to mama first He's coming home Please tell me he's coming home Words cant describe what I was feeling When mama shot us all the peace sign Tears rolled when she hung up the phone Hit her knees and thanked the Lord above My boys coming home He's coming home He's coming home He's coming home
