Indigo Girls - Come On Home Lyrics




Dark clouds are comin' like an army
Soon the sky will open up and disarm me
You will go just like you've gone before
One sad soldier off to war, enemies that only you can see.

Dishes stacked, the table cleared
It's always like the scene of the last supper here
You speak so cryptically that's not news to me
The flood is here it will carry you
And I've got work to do.

Come on home, the team you're hitched to has a mind of its own
But it's just the forces of your past you've fought before
Come back here and shut the door
I'm stacking sandbags against the river of your troubles.

There is fire there is lust
Some will trade it all for someone they could trust
There's a bag of silver for a box of nails
It's so simple the betrayal
Though it's known to change the world and what's to come.

Just come on home, the team you're hitched to has a mind of its own
But it's just the forces of your past you've fought before
Don't you recognize them anymore
I'm stacking sandbags against the river of your troubles.

There's the given and the expected
I count my blessings while I eye what I've neglected
Is this for better is this for worse
You're all jammed up and the dam's about to burst.

I hear the owl in the night
I realize that some things never are made right
By some will we string together here
Days to months and months to years
What if everything we have adds up to nothing.

Come on home, the team you're hitched to has a mind of its own
But it's just the forces of your past you've fought before
Come back here and shut the door
I'm stacking sandbags against the river of your troubles.

    Grace and unconditional love whisper through the lyrics of this song.

    C Hill

    I'm not so sure anymore. I just now understood "I'm stacking sandbags against the river of your trouble" as if she is slowly becoming more guarded and indifferent to the neglectful person.

  2. Diana R.

    Fantastic, soulful lyrics.

    Wow--I want to always remember this song. It eases my soul, which is very rare these days.

  11. luthierboy

    Amazing song writers and musicians. Songwriting like this is hard to find. Once you've heard really good writing you can't go back to the crap you listened to before. It just doesn't measure up.

  12. Gretchen Pittendrigh
