Resurrection Home

Banjo

 

Iíve got a home far beyond this world, where I will be Ďfore long

Itís streets are gold and its gates are pearl, and Iím goin there no more to roam

When I die you can bury me, Ďneath that cold, cold ground

ĎCause this ainít my home and Iíll shake it free, when I rise at that trumpet sound

 

Many I love have gone before, Iíve helped place stones facing East

Our Lord prepared them a home in glory, where theyíre forever in perfect peace

When I die you can bury me, Ďneath that cold, cold ground

ĎCause this ainít my home and Iíll shake it free, when I rise at that trumpet sound

 

Brothers and sisters come and gather Ďround, listen to that still small voice

Calliní so quiet Ďfore that thunder rolls, dear child tell me your choice

When I die you can bury me, Ďneath that cold, cold ground

ĎCause this ainít my home and Iíll shake it free, when I rise at that trumpet sound
