Bone by Bone

from Danya River by Danya River

When I was eating peaches
Mama called me on the phone
She echoed like a drifter
She said "Baby, please come home,
I need you home”

In my unraveled sweater
in my ageless stomping boots
I drove home to Mama
to see what baby girl could do
To see what I could...

Home, home going home
Bone by bone going home
Home, home going home
Bone by bone I'm going home

He was in the kitchen
Mama fed him with a spoon
and how his eyes are sparkless
and my father cannot move
What am I supposed to...

...bone by bone he's going home

Up we lifted Papa
From his wheels onto the bed
and I read him stories
like he did when we were kids
like he read when we were...

...bone by bone we’re going home

“Bone by Bone” is fictional and loosely based on the life
experiences of a dear friend. My own dad is in excellent health.
