F C GI can smell the death on the sheets, covering me. I can't believe this is the end
C F G AmBut this is my deathbed I lie here alone
C F G CIf I close my eyes tonight I know I'll be home
C Gm Bb FThe year was 1941; I was eight years old and far far too young,
C GmTo know that the stories of battles and glory,
Bb FWas a tale a kind mother made up for her son.
C Gm Bb FYou see, Dad was a traveling preacher, teaching the words of the teacher.
C GmBut Mother had sworn he went off to the war,
Bb FAnd 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/EWhatever I thought a father should be
Cm DI abandoned that thought like he abandoned me
D D/C# D/C G/BBy ’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 GSo right there you have it. That one filthy habit is what got me where I am today.
Fmaj7 C GI can smell the death on the sheets covering me; I can't believe this is the end
Fmaj7 C GI can hear those sad memories still haunting me, so many things I'd do again
C F G AmBut this is my deathbed, I lie here alone
C F G CIf I close my eyes tonight, I know I'll be home
C Gm Bb FI got married on my twenty first. Eight months before my wife would give birth.
C GmIt's easier to be sure you love someone,
Bb FWhen 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/EThe years would go by and she'd love someone else,
Cm DAnd I realized I hadn't been loved yet myself.
D D/C# D/CAnd there's your typical spiel. Yeah, if life was a highway
G/B Gm/Bb D/AI 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 CI bowled about six times a week. The bottle of Beam kept the memories from me.
Fmaj7 COur marriage had taken a seven-ten split
Dm C GAlong with my pride the ex-wife took the kids
F G CI can smell the death on the sheets covering me. I can't believe this is the end
F G CI can hear those sad memories still haunting me so many things, I'd do again
C F G AmBut this is my deathbed, I lie here alone
C F G CIf I close my eyes tonight, I know I'll be home
C GmI was so scared of Jesus, but He sought me out.
Bb FLike the cancer in my lungs that's killing me now.
C GmAnd I've given up hope on the days I have left.
Bb FBut 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 AYou cried wolf. The tears they soaked your fur
G5 Em7 D AThe blood dripped from your fangs. You said, "What have I done?"
Em7 D BmYou loved that lamb with every sinful bone
A G5 Em AAnd there you wept alone your heart was so contrite
Em7 D G5 Em7 D G5You said, "Jesus, please forgive me of my crimes, sanctify this withered heart of mine
Em D G5 Em7 D G5Stay with me until my life is through, and on that day please take me home with you"
G5 D AI can smell the death on the sheets, covering me. I can't believe this is the end.
G5 Bb D AI can hear You whisper to me, "It's time to leave you'll never be lonely again.”
D G5 A BmBut 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)
D D/F# Bm7 G AI am the Way follow Me and take My hand
D D/F# Bm7 A GAnd I am the Truth, embrace Me and you'll understand.
D D/F# D/C GAnd I am the Light and for Me, you'll live again.
G A Bm G A BmFor I am Love. I am Love
D Em G A DI----I, I am Love
