Supper Time

           F                    Bb                      F
When I was just a boy in days of childhood,
     C                                                           F     Bb   F   C
I used to play till evening shadows come.
           F                            Bb                 F
Then winding down an old familiar pathway,
    C                                                     F    Bb   F
I heard my mother call at set of sun:
             Bb                                                 F
Come home, come home, It’s supper time,
           C                            F      Bb     F
The shadows lengthen fast.
              Bb                                                 F
Come home, come home, It’s supper time,
             C                        F    Bb    F    C
We’re going home at last.
          F                        Bb                   F
One day beside her bedside I was kneeling,
          C                                                      F        Bb   F  C
And angel wings were winnowing the air.
          F                            Bb                        F
She heard the call for supper time in heaven,
          C                                                          F        Bb     F
And now I know she’s waiting for me there.
      F                    Bb                           F
In visions now I see her standing yonder,
         C                                                      F       Bb  F   C
And her familiar voice I hear once more.
 F                           Bb                 F
The banquet table’s ready up in heaven,
C                                                  F         Bb       F
It’s supper time upon the golden shore.
