Lonely Tombs

Song Author William M. Golden Performer: Hank Williams Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]I was strolling one day in a lonely graveyard
When a voice from the tomb seemed to [G7]say   
I once [C]lived as you live walked and talked as you talk
But from earth I was [G7]soon called a[C]way  


Oh those tombs oh those tombs
Lonely tombs lonely tombs
Seemed to say in a low gentle [G7]tone   
Oh how [C]sweet oh how sweet
Is the rest is the rest
In our beautiful [G7]heavenly [C]home


Every voice from the tomb seemed to whisper and say
Living man you must soon follow [G7]me   
And I [C]thought as I gazed on that cold marble slab
What a sad lonesome [G7]place that must [C]be  

Oh those tombs oh those tombs
Lonely tombs lonely tombs
Seemed to say in a low gentle [G7]tone   
Oh how [C]sweet oh how sweet
Is the rest is the rest
In our beautiful [G7]heavenly [C]home

I then came to the place where my mother did lay
And her voice soft and low from the [G7]tomb   
It said [C]son I'm at rest with the Savior above
I am safe in my [G7]heavenly [C]home

Oh those tombs oh those tombs
Lonely tombs lonely tombs
Seemed to say in a low gentle [G7]tone   
Oh how [C]sweet oh how sweet
Is the rest is the rest
In our beautiful [G7]heavenly [C]home

I was strolling one day in a lonely graveyard
When a voice from the tomb seemed to say
I once lived as you live walked and talked as you talk
But from earth I was soon called away

Oh those tombs oh those tombs
Lonely tombs lonely tombs
Seemed to say in a low gentle tone
Oh how sweet oh how sweet
Is the rest is the rest
In our beautiful heavenly home

Every voice from the tomb seemed to whisper and say
Living man you must soon follow me
And I thought as I gazed on that cold marble slab
What a sad lonesome place that must be

Oh those tombs oh those tombs
Lonely tombs lonely tombs
Seemed to say in a low gentle tone
Oh how sweet oh how sweet
Is the rest is the rest
In our beautiful heavenly home

I then came to the place where my mother did lay
And her voice soft and low from the tomb
It said son I'm at rest with the Savior above
I am safe in my heavenly home

Oh those tombs oh those tombs
Lonely tombs lonely tombs
Seemed to say in a low gentle tone
Oh how sweet oh how sweet
Is the rest is the rest
In our beautiful heavenly home
