Sing Me Back Home (Merle Haggard)

The warden led a prisoner down the hallway to his doom
I stood up to say good-bye 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.'

Want you Sing me back home with a song I used to hear
Make my old memories come alive
And take me away and turn back the years
Sing Me Back Home before I die

And I remember Sunday evening when a choir came in from town
Just to sing a few old gospel song
And I heard him tell the singers 'There's a song my mama sang
Could you sing it once before we move along?'
