Send Him Home to Me

(Bob Nolan)

 

The moon made a silver trail far oer the sea.
There, on the shore, a maid waits patiently.
She sighs to a star that shines from afar,
Send him home to me.

He roams far oer the sea
In some forgotten land.
Someday, hell come to me
And take me by the hand.
Each night Ill pray to heaven
That safe hell always be.
So, watch over my love and
Send him home to me.

Then out of the night the dawn came shining through.
The sun sent a welcome smile down from the blue.
And all through the day the waves seemed to say,
Ill send him home to you.

 

"Send Him Home to Me" was registered for copyright on February 16 1938 but was previously recorded for ARC on October 26 1937. Len Slye had signed a contract with Republic on October 13th, leaving the Sons of the Pioneers and become Roy Rogers. Two sessions in December would be the last he would record as a member of the group.  In 1940 the Sons of the Pioneers included the song in their Orthacoustic "Symphonies of the Sage" radio transcriptions. Bob Nolan soloed on the recordings. We have found no sheet music.
