WHERE IS MY BOY TONIGHT




Where is my wand’ring boy tonight—
The boy of my tend’rest care,
The boy that was once
my joy and light,
The child of my love and prayer?

Oh, where is my boy tonight?
Oh, where is my boy tonight?
My heart o’erflows, for I love him,
he knows;
Oh, where is my boy tonight?



Once he was pure as morning dew,
As he knelt at his mother’s knee;
No face was so bright,
no heart more true,
And none was so sweet as he.

Oh, where is my boy tonight?
Oh, where is my boy tonight?
My heart o’erflows, for I love him,
he knows;
Oh, where is my boy tonight?



Oh, could I see you now, my boy,
As fair as in olden time,
When prattle and smile
made home a joy,
And life was a merry chime!

Oh, where is my boy tonight?
Oh, where is my boy tonight?
My heart o’erflows, for I love him,
he knows;
Oh, where is my boy tonight?



Go for my wand’ring boy to-night;
Go, search for him where you will;
But bring him to me
with all his blight,
And tell him I love him still!

Oh, where is my boy tonight?
Oh, where is my boy tonight?
My heart o’erflows, for I love him,
he knows;
Oh, where is my boy tonight?
