I can't believe this is the end C F G Am But this is my deathbed I lie here alone C F G C If I close my eyes tonight I know I'll be home C Gm Bb F The year was 1941; I was eight years old and far far too young, C Gm To know that the stories of battles and glory, Bb F Was a tale a kind mother made up for her son. C Gm Bb F You see, Dad was a traveling preacher, teaching the words of the teacher. C Gm But Mother had sworn he went off to the war, Bb F And died there with honor, somewhere on a beach there Am A/Ab C/G D/F# But he left once to never return, which taught me that I should unlearn Fmaj7 C/E Whatever I thought a father should be Cm D I abandoned that thought like he abandoned me D D/C# D/C G/B By ’47, I was fourteen. I'd acquired a taste for liquor and nicotine Gm/B D/A A A/Ab A/G D/F# I smoked until I threw up, yet I still lit 'em up for thirty more years like a machine Fmaj7 C Fmaj7 C Dm C G So right there you have it. That one filthy habit is what got me where I am today. Fmaj7 C G I can smell the death on the sheets covering me; I can't believe this is the end Fmaj7 C G I can hear those sad memories still haunting me, so many things I'd do again C F G Am But this is my deathbed, I lie here alone C F G C If I close my eyes tonight, I know I'll be home C Gm Bb F I got married on my twenty first. Eight months before my wife would give birth. C Gm It's easier to be sure you love someone, Bb F When her father inquires with the barrel of a gun. Am Am/G# The union was far from harmonious. C/G D/F# No two people could have been more alone than us. Fmaj7 C/E The years would go by and she'd love someone else, Cm D And I realized I hadn't been loved yet myself. D D/C# D/C And there's your typical spiel. Yeah, if life was a highway G/B Gm/Bb D/A I was drunk at the wheel. I was helping the loose ends, all fall apart. A A/Ab A/G D/F# Yeah I swear I was destined to fail, and fail from the start Fmaj7 C Fmaj7 C I bowled about six times a week. The bottle of Beam kept the memories from me. Fmaj7 C Our marriage had taken a seven-ten split Dm C G Along with my pride the ex-wife took the kids F G C I can smell the death on the sheets covering me. I can't believe this is the end F G C I can hear those sad memories still haunting me so many things, I'd do again C F G Am But this is my deathbed, I lie here alone C F G C If I close my eyes tonight, I know I'll be home C Gm I was so scared of Jesus, but He sought me out. Bb F Like the cancer in my lungs that's killing me now. C Gm And I've given up hope on the days I have left. Bb F But I cling to the hope of my life in the next. Am A/Ab A/G D/F# Then Jesus showed up said "Before we go, I thought that we might reminisce" Fmaj7 C/E "See one night in your life when you turned out the light" Cm/Eb D "You asked for and prayed for my forgiveness" D Bm A You cried wolf. The tears they soaked your fur G5 Em7 D A The blood dripped from your fangs. You said, "What have I done?" Em7 D Bm You loved that lamb with every sinful bone A G5 Em A And there you wept alone your heart was so contrite Em7 D G5 Em7 D G5 You said, "Jesus, please forgive me of my crimes, sanctify this withered heart of mine Em D G5 Em7 D G5 Stay with me until my life is through, and on that day please take me home with you" G5 D A I can smell the death on the sheets, covering me. I can't believe this is the end. G5 Bb D A I can hear You whisper to me, "It's time to leave you'll never be lonely again.” D G5 A Bm But this was my deathbed, I died there alone. D G5 A G/D D G/D D When I closed my eyes tonight, You carried me home. (repeat) D D/F# Bm7 G A I am the Way follow Me and take My hand D D/F# Bm7 A G And I am the Truth, embrace Me and you'll understand. D D/F# D/C G And I am the Light and for Me, you'll live again.
