My father told me always be strong son,
Don't you ever cry.
You find the pretty girls and then you love them,
Then you say goodbye.
I never dreamed that you would leave me,
But now you're gone (gone, gone).
I never dreamed that I would miss you.
Woman won't you come back home,
I never dreamed that you could hurt me,
And leave me blue.
I've had a thousand maybe more women,
But never one like you.
I never dreamed that I could feel so empty
But now I'm down, down, down
I never dreamed that I would beg you,
Woman I need you now (I need you now)
It seems to me that I took your love for granted,
Feels to me that this time I was wrong (so wrong).
Oh lord, now I feel so lonely, yeah
Woman, won't you come back home.
I Tried to do what my father taught me,
But I think he knew.
Someday that I would find one woman like you.
I never dreamed that it could feel so good, Lord.
That two could be one.
I never knew about sweet love lord,
Woman won't you come back home (back home).
