No not a word, no not a word
No not a word from home anyhome

If only I could hear, just one little word
From mother and daddy my heart
Would fill with cheer
Each day I take a walk
I travel down the trail
Each day the postman tells me
No letter in the mail

* Refrain

If only I could hear one little
Word from home
My heart would be so flattered
I never more would roam
The days have turned to weeks
The weeks have turned to years
Without one little word
From ones I love so dear

* Refrain

The last time mother wrote
They were all okay
But I'm getting worried
They're getting old and gray
Each night I say a player
And I always say
I'll start home tomorrow
I can't live on this way

* Rerfrain
