Sing Me Back Home

In the style of

Merle Haggard

Lyrics

the warden
led a prisoner
down the hallway
to his doom
and i stood up
to say goodbye
like all the rest

and i heard him
tell the warden
just before he
reached my cell
let my guitar-playing
friend do my request

let him sing me
back home
with a song
i used to hear
and make my old
memories come alive

and take me away
and turn back
the years
and sing me back home
before i die

i recall last
sunday morning
a choir from
off the streets
came in to sing
a few old
gospel songs

and i heard him
tell the singers
there's a song
my mama sang
could i hear it once
before you
move along

won't you sing me
back home
with a song
i used to hear
and make my old
memories come alive

and take me away
and turn back
the years
and sing me back home
before i die

and sing me back home
before i die
