Lyrics
Brother John where are you
M.I.A. in seventy two
Brother John you know I swear
One day I'll find you over there

When you left home, I waved goodbye
I watched you vanish down the street
Momma said it'll be alright
Just you wait and see

Brother John where are you
Back in nineteen ninety two
Brother John, dad passed on
Now we don't live where we used to

When you come home and we're not there
Do you remember that oak tree
You'll find our address I carved it there
Just you wait and see

Brother John where are you
It's now well past 2002
And Brother John, momma's gone
Guess it's down to me and you
Brother John

BREAK

As I grow older, I realize
That in this world we'll never speak
But we will meet again where angels fly
Just you wait and see

Brother John where are you
M.I.A. in seventy two
Brother John you know I swear
One day I'll find you over there

Brother John
