[Verse 1]

               D
Elijah came to Texas
                           G
To build his family a home
         D 
With his wife and new baby
                                G
And what little goods that they owned
      D 
Had a good yoke of oxen
                                G
And hand tools for clearing the land
       A 
And he built him a church
       A7                   D
'Cause he was a God fearin' man


[Verse 2]

D 
All of his children when there
                           G
Worshiped here through the years
        D 
On down to my granddad
                                G
He's buried 'bout 40 yards from here
     D 
It's where I was baptized
                      G
And where I took me a wife
       A
And if I have my say so
A7                               D
That's where I'll rest when it's time


[Chorus]

         D 
When I'm dead and I'm gone

Won't you carry me home

To that little white church
      G            D
In my daddy's home town
       D 
'Cause Lord knows I'm some kind of sinner
         Em 
But I've done come this far
         A
And it's too late for changin'
          D 
When this race has been run

Take me back  where I came from
    Bm                   A
And let me return what I took from the ground
          G                      D
When this body won't carry me no further

Take me back
A7         D
And lay me down


 [verse 3]

D 
That old east Texas red dirt
                                G
Won't grow much of nothin' they say
      D 
'Cept tomatoes and peaches
                              G
They mostly drill for oil nowadays
      D 
And a hired hand named Regan
                   G
First made me understand
       A                       A7                     D
And he told me the red was the blood of my kin in the land


[Chorus]

         D 
When I'm dead and I'm gone

Won't you carry me home

To that little white church
      G            D
In my daddy's home town
      D
Cause lord knows I'm some kinda sinner
         Em 
But I've done come this far
         A
And it's too late for changing 
         D
When tis race has been run

Take me back where I came from
    Bm                   A
And let me return what I took from the ground
          G                      D
When this body won't carry me no further

Take me back 
A7         D
And lay me down
