Won't You Come And Sing For Me
  
I [G] feel the shadows [C] now upon me
[F] And fair angels [C] beckon to [G] me
Be [F] fore I go dear [C] Christian brothers
[G] Won't you come and [F] sing for [C] me

CHORUS:
[F] Sing those hymns that [C] we sang together
In that [G] plain little church with the [F] benches all [C] worn
How [F] dear to my heart how [C] precious the moments
We [G] stood shaking hands and [F]singing those [C] songs.

My burden is heavy my heart has grown weary
I have traveled a road that was long
And it would warm this old heart dear brothers
If you'ld come and sing one song

CHORUS

In my home beyond that dark river
Your dear faces no longer I'll see
Until we meet where there's no more sad parting
Won't you come and sing for me.

CHORUS + tag:
...
How [F] dear to my heart how [C] precious the moments
We [G] stood shaking hands and [F]singing those [C] songs.
