Gone Home

A                        D
All of my friends that I loved yesterday
     E
Gone home (they have gone home)
     A
Gone home (they have gone home)
                                D
The song bird that sings in the dale seems to say
     E                    
Gone home (they have gone home)
     A
Gone home (they have gone home)


Chorus
        D                   A
They've joined the heavenly fold
                                   E
They're walking on streets of pure gold
     A                        D
They left one by one as their work here was done
     E
Gone home (they have gone home)
     A
Gone home (they have gone home)

Life here is lonely since they've gone before
Gone home (they have gone home)
Gone home (they have gone home)
The old weeping willow that stands by the door
sadly sings
Gone home (they have gone home)
Gone home (they have gone home)

Chorus

The trumpet will sound 
On that great judgement day
Gone home (they have gone home)
Gone home (they have gone home)
We'll see all our friends 
Who have gone on that way
Gone home (they have gone home)
Gone home (they have gone home)

Chorus
