Verse:
Ev -'ning marks the close of day, Skies of blue be -gin to grey,
Crim -son hues are fad -ing in the West;
Ev -'ning ev -er brings to me Dreams of days that used to be,
Mem -o -ries of those I love the best.
 
Chorus:
When shad-ows fall And trees whis-per day is end-ing,
My thoughts are ev-er wend-ing Home;
When crick-ets call My heart is for-ev-er yearn-ing,
Once more to be re-turn-ing Home.
When the hills con-ceal the set-ing sun,
Stars be-gin a -peep -ing one by one,
Night cov-ers all And, though for-tune may for-sake me,
Sweet dreams will ev-er take me Home
