                F							             C     G
I can smell the death on the sheets, covering me. 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)
