Call Me Home

If all our days are numbered
Before eternal slumber
Takes the troubled mind
Far away from this green earth

Well there must come a day
My soul will fly away
And my body will be laid down
Deep beneath the dirt

When my clock no longer ticks
And my guitar no longer picks
And they finally lay to rest my skin and bones

Will you be there in the crowd
To call my name out good and loud
Won’t you be there when they call me home

If there’s a place beyond
Where every heart has gone
All women and all men
Will someday meet again

I believe I am prepared
To meet my maker there
And when He calls me home
Well I will not be alone
