You don't have to wait... he's not coming back.

Suitcase packed with all his things Car pulls up, the doorbell rings He don't wanna go He thought he'd found his home But with circumstances he can't change Waves goodbye as they pull away From the life he's known for the last 7 months or so She said, "We've found a man who looks like you, who cried and said he never knew, about the boy in pictures that we showed him, a rambler in his younger days. He knew he'd made a few mistakes but he swore he would have been there had he known it Son, we think we found your dad in Oklahoma." A million thoughts raced through his mind What's his name, what's he like and will he be anything like the man in his dreams. She could see the questions in his eyes whispered "don't be scared my child" I will let you know what we know About the man we found, he looks like you who cried and said he never knew about the boy in pictures that we showed him a rambler in his younger days. He knew he'd made a few mistakes but he swore he would have been there had he known it. You always said that this was something that you wanted Son, it's time to meet your dad in Oklahoma One last turn he held his breath till they reached the faint house on the left and all at once the tears came rollin in and as they pulled into the drive the man was waiting there outside. He wiped the worry from his eyes smiled and took his hand and he said I'm the man who looks like you who cried because I never knew about the boy in pictures that they showed me Oh, a rambler in my younger days I knew I'd made a few mistakes But I swear I would have been there had I known it. Never again will you ever be alone Son, welcome to your home in Oklahoma
