Submitted by: Gene Graham [email@example.com] Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr. Words and music by Floyd Jenkins THE PRODIGAL SON [G] A Prodigal son once [C] strayed from his [G] father To travel a land of [A] hunger and [D] pain And [G] now I can see the [C] end of my [G] journey I'm going to [D] heaven a-[G] gain. I leave you the day to help all your neighbors I leave you the night to solemnly pray So try to repent and ask for forgiveness We'll meet up in heaven someday. Goodbye to this world with all its sorrows Goodbye to the fields that I used to roam I'm going away where life is eternal My Shepherd is callin me home. From out of the sky He's coming to meet me To wash all my sins and call me His own His servants will bring a ring for my finger And never no more will I roam.Home
