Darling Be Home Soon

Allison Crowe's trio perform "Darling Be Home Soon", a song penned by the great American songwriter and musician John Sebastian - and which was a hit for The Lovin' Spoonful in 1967 and performed solo at Woodstock in '69.



These days Sebastian, composer of numerous classic songs - beautiful and playful - is still busy, making jug band music. "It seems to make him feel just fine..."

Crowe, who engineered and recorded this track for her album, "This Little Bird", is accompanied here by Dave Baird on bass and Laurent Boucher on percussion.

The b/w photo of Allison Crowe and her darling is by Billie Woods.

Darling Be Home Soon

Words & Music by John Sebastian
As performed by Allison Crowe


Come
And talk of all the things we did today

Here
And laugh about our funny little ways
While we have a few minutes to breathe
Then I know that it's time you must leave

But darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

And now
A quarter of my life is almost past
I think I've come to see myself at last
And I see that the time spent confused
Was the time that I spent without you
And I feel myself in bloom

So darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

Darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled
My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to

Go
And beat your crazy head against the sky
Try
And see beyond the houses and your eyes
It's ok to shoot the moon

So darling
My darling be home soon
I couldn't bear to wait an extra minute if you dawdled

My darling be home soon
It's not just these few hours but I've been waiting since I toddled
For the great relief of having you to talk to
