: Kiss till the cow comes home. Was written by Francis Beaumont, 1584-1616. I got it off brainyquote. I'm sure its the source of "till the cow come home" but I'll leave it to you to figure it out. Rots a ruck.

I don't know the origin of the quote. But anyone who has lived on a farm knows about the cows coming home. They are let out of the barn, graze in the fields during the day, and then come home at night to be milked.
