Subject: RE: BS: Your own funeral
"gone home,"words and music by,bill carlylse. the only serious song that he probably ever wrote,but now a classic amoung the old-time gospel songs.

1.ALL OF THE FRIENDS THAT I LOVED YESTERDAY, GONE HOME-GONE HOME. THE SONGBIRDS THAT SING IN THE DELL SEEM TO SAY, GONE HOME-GONE-HOME. chorus THEY'VE JOINED THE HEAVENLY HOME. THE'RE WALKING THE STREETS OF PURE GOLD. THEY LEFT ONE BY ONE, AS THEIR WORK HERE WAS DONE, GONE HOME-GONE HOME.

2.LIFE HERE IS EMPTY SINCE THEY'VE GONE BEFORE, GONE HOME-GONE HOME. THE OLD WEEPING WILLOW THAT STANDS BY THE DOOR, GONE HOME-GONE HOME.

3.WHEN THE TRUMPET SHALL SOUND ON THAT GREAT JUDGEMENT DAY, GONE HOME-GONE HOME. WE'LL MEET ALL OUR FRIENDS THAT HAVE GONE ON THEIR WAY, GONE HOME-GONE HOME.
