From: "Felton Hall"
Title: Ready To Go Home
Artist: Hank Williams circa 1951 (Hank and his guitar)
Writer: Hank Williams

I went to church with my mom once and they had an evangelist visiting who
told the congregation that he was once a drunk and was doing drugs. At a
party, someone was playing Hank Williams and the song "Ready To Go Home"
started playing. He listened to it for a bit and he said that the way Hank
sang it made chill bumps come up and that he threw the bottle down and
left. He said that one song totally changed his life. So here it is, enjoy!

Ready To Go Home

(E)There's comin' a day when the (A)world shall melt a(E)way
And Jesus shall come to claim His (B7)own
No more (E)tears, no pain, no woe, in this (A)wicked world be(E)low
Then will you be (B7)ready to go (E)home

(A)Will you be ready to go, ready to go home
To live with Him up there around the (B7)throne
When He (E)says come unto Me, will your (A)soul be clean and (E)free
Then will you be (B7)ready to go (E)home

In this world of greed and hate will you (A)wait til it's too (E)late
To claim the Saviour for your (B7)own
For He's (E)coming someday, to (A)bear your soul a(E)way
Then will you be (B7)ready to go (E)home

As you travel day by day, (A)down life's long high(E)way
Are you on the road that leads to (B7)wrong
If you'll just (E)travel in His light and (A)pray both day and (E)night
Then you'll be (B7)ready to go (E)home
