lyrics

ALL ROADS LEAD TO HOME
(Ian M. Bruce/Ian J. Walker)

Only fourteen years old
His mama passed away
The bottle saw his daddy through the day
Like fledgelings in the nest
Waiting for Father's return
Waiting for worms
Waiting for worms
Like fledgelings in the nest waiting for worms.

He fell heir to the care of sisters so young
Doing the things his daddy should have done
They snatched his youth
Blew it all away
Blew it away
His worth realised when he left one day.

And Dad said ....
"Sorry son, I'm sorry
I understand your need to roam
If the sign at the crossroad tumbles down All roads
All roads

But home shifts its place
Well out of range
Wonders why he waited so long for the change
Children of his own
Exuberant and free
Deedle - e - dee Deedle - e - dee
Spending his days with the family

He still hears
"Sorry son, I'm sorry
I understand your need to roam
If the sign at the crossroad tumbles down
All roads
All roads
All roads lead to home"

When the night comes down
There's no-one around and he's thinking
Of the grudge he- bears
And how it's wearing thin
Dawn parades - the darkness fades
"I'm gonna find my Dad
Gonna welcome the old man in.

I'm gonna say
"Sorry Dad, I'm sorry if I caused you any pain
If the sign at the crossroad tumbles down
All roads All roads
All roads lead to home"

Sister's at the door of the old family home
A tear in her eye says there's something wrong
"You're just one week too late
He's back with Mama now
Together again
Together again
Back with Mama now - together again".

Because the sign at the crossroad tumbled down
And all roads All roads
All roads led to home
