Sing Me Back Home (Baez Joan)

The warden led a prisoner down the hallway to his doom I stood up to say goodbye like all the rest And I heard him tell the warden just before he reached my cell Let my guitar playing friend do my request Let him sing me back home, a song I used to hear Make my old memories come alive Take me away and turn back the years Sing me back home before I die I recall last Sunday morning, a choir from off the street Came in to do a few old gospel songs And I heard him tell the singers, there's a song my mama sang Could I hear it once before you move along? Won't you sing me back home, a song I used to hear Make my old memories come alive Take me away and turn back the years Sing me back home before I die
