Sing Me Back Home

Song Author Merle Haggard Performer: Merle Haggard Submitted by: Anonymous
[G]The warden led a [D7]prisoner
Down the [C]hallway to his [G]doom
I stood up to say goodbye like all the [D7]rest   
I [G]heard him tell the [D7]warden
Just [C]before he reached my [G]cell
Let my guitar playing [D7]friend do my [G]request

Let him sing me back [D7]home   
With the [C]songs I used to [G]hear
Make my old memories come [D7]alive
[G]Take me [D7]away and [C]turn back the [G]years
Let him sing me back [D7]home before I [G]die  

I recall last Sunday [D7]morning
A [C]choir came off the [G]street
Came in to sing a few old gospel [D7]songs
I [G]heard him tell the [D7]singers
There's a [C]song my mamma [G]sang
Could I hear it once [D7]before you move [G]along

[G]The warden led a [D7]prisoner
Down the [C]hallway to his [G]doom
I stood up to say goodbye like all the [D7]rest   
I [G]heard him tell the [D7]warden
Just [C]before he reached my [G]cell
Let my guitar playing [D7]friend do my [G]request

The warden led a prisoner
Down the hallway to his doom
I stood up to say goodbye like all the rest
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 the songs I used to hear
Make my old memories come alive
Take me away and turn back the years
Let him sing me back home before I die

I recall last Sunday morning
A choir came off the street
Came in to sing a few old gospel songs
I heard him tell the singers
There's a song my mamma sang
Could I hear it once before you move along

The warden led a prisoner
Down the hallway to his doom
I stood up to say goodbye like all the rest
I heard him tell the warden
Just before he reached my cell
Let my guitar playing friend do my request
