The warden led a prisoner down the hallway to his doom
And I stood up to say good-bye like all the rest 
And I heard him tell the warden just before he reached my cell

Came in to sing a few old gospel songs
And I heard him tell the singers "there's a song my mama sang
Could I hear once before you move along?"

Make my old memories come alive
Take me away and turn back the years
Sing me back home before I die

Sing me back home before I die
