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 eighty two
Brother John, dad passed on
Now we don't live where we used to

If you come calling 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
I have a son named after you
And Brother John, momma's gone
She never once stopped missing 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
