Coming Home . by Steve Clark .

Put a light in the window, your brother’s coming home
Set a meal on the table, your brother’s coming home

He’ll be tired and weary after all these years alone

he’s coming home, your brother’s coming home


Coming home to a place they’ve never been

Coming home to a land they’ve never seen                 

Coming home to a family they have never known

All Jock Tamson’s bairns. Are coming home

Take the chain from the door
Your sister’s coming home
Open wide your arms
Your sister’s coming home
Don’t leave her standing there
After all the pain she’s known
She’s coming home,
Your sister’s coming home

He’s been angry and afraid
Your father’s coming home
He’s been hounded and betrayed
Your father’s coming home
And with every act of kindness
A seed of hope is sown
He’s coming home.
Your father’s coming home

Bring her in from the cold
Your mother’s coming home
Sit her down by the fire
Your mother’s coming home
Make her warm, make her welcome
Before the chance is gone
She’s coming home, your mother’s coming home

From New Zealand and Australia
Your family’s coming home
And from Canada and America
Your family’s coming home
To hearth and the Homeland
That they have never known
They’re coming home,
Your family’s coming home.

Last verse changed from original with writers blessing.

  1. I’ve looked so long for this lyrics since I’ve heard this song last year in the Castle of Schlettau. I love this song.
