lyrics

PRODIGAL CHILD
Winni Smith / Darden Smith

I remember cornbread from scratch
With fatback and collard greens
I remember little rocks underneath the streetlight
Summertime like a dream
Prodigal Child
They called me the Prodigal Child

I remember 18, first child, life changed
I went far away
I saw other women living their dreams
My grandma always used to scream
You’re the Prodigal Child
Prodigal Child

Momma was a runner, I’ve always been a runner
Running from who I am
I had to go far, far, far away
To finally understand
That I’m the Prodigal Child
I’m the Prodigal Child

Now I’ve come home, I’ve filled my home
With all the places I have been
I know the only place that I am safe
Is deep within
The Prodigal Child
The Prodigal Child

I remember cornbread from scratch
With fatback and collard greens
I remember little rocks underneath the streetlight
Summertime like a dream
Prodigal Child
They called me the Prodigal Child
