"SING ME BACK HOME"
by: alabama
songwriter: merle haggard

Well, the warden led a prisoner
down the hallway to his doom
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 friend play my last request"

He said, "Sing me back home,
with a song I used to hear
Make my old mem'ries come alive
And take me away and turn back the years
Sing me back home before I die"

I recall last Sunday morning,
a choir from off the streets
Came in to sing a few more 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?"

And he said, "Sing me back home,
with a song I used to hear
Make my old mem'ries come alive
And take me away and turn back the years
Sing me back home before I die
Won't you sing me back home before I die"
