    A            E                 D              A
The warden led a prisoner down the hallway to his doom
A                                       E
I stood up to say good-bye like all the rest
      A                  E              D                 A
And I heard him tell the warden just before he reached my cell
A                      E               A
Let my guitar playing friend do my request. Let him


CHORUS:
A            E           D              A
Sing me back home with a song I used to hear
A                          E
Make my old memories come alive
A        E       D             A
Take me away and turn back the years
A            E             A
Sing Me Back Home before I die



    A           E                D                 A   
I recall last Sunday morning a choir came in from town
A                              E
Just to sing a few old gospel song
        A                  E                 D             A
And I heard him tell the singers There's a song my mama sang.
A                  E             A
Can I hear once before we move along?

CHORUS

ENDING:
A            E             D    A
Sing Me Back Home before I die-ie
