Someone's waiting for me Honey sweet as can be Wanna hold her tight Lord, make her be all right Maybe 'round the next bend All the ashes'll end Valleys will be green Instead of what I've seen I'm afraid for the scrubby pine Aw, the sweet honeysuckle vine I'm afraid for my home For the fields that I roamed Kick along down a homeward road And your heart's gotta take the load I'm afraid to go home I'm afraid to go home Sherman's been in my town Burned it all to the ground Now there's not a tree 'Tween Memphis and the sea Now there's not a tree 'Tween Memphis and the sea
