Waiting For My Child To Come Home – Patti Griffin

Give this a try. Here is the video I used to work out the chords: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XY6k7Un6DJY&feature=related

Capo 5th fret

[C] I was talking to a lady a few days a-[F]-go
And [C] these are the words she [G] said
If you [C] see my child somewhere
As you [F] journey here and [C] there
Tell him I'm waiting for my [G] child to come [C] home

I am waiting and waiting for [F] my child to [C] come
I'm waiting and waiting for [G] my child to come
If you [C] can't come [C7] home
Could you [F] please send me a [C] letter
A letter would [G] mean so much to [C] me

Oh my child may be [G] somewhere
[C] On his sick [F] bed
With [C] no one to rub his aching [G] head

Oh my [C] child may be somewhere
In some lonely [F] jail
With [C] no one [G] there to go his [C] bail

If I only knew what town [F] my child was [C] in
I'd be there on that early morning [G] train
And no [C] matter what his [C7] crime
Lord you [F] know that child is [C] mine
That’s why I'll be waiting for my [G] child to come [C] home [F]

I’ll be [C] waiting, [G] waiting
I’ll be [C] waiting and [F] waiting
I be [C] waiting for my [G] child to come [F] ho-[C]-me
