Go Home And Pray


While drinking alone in a tap room one day
my eyes they hardly could see
I heard a voice ringing so loud and clear
and here’s what that voice said to me
Go home, go home and kneel by your bedside and pray
Go home, go home, God will answer your prayers today

I staggered across the room to the door
I almost fell on the floor
I knew there was laughter but I could not hear
for the words that still rang in my ears
Go home, go home and kneel by your bedside and pray
Go home, go home, God will answer your prayers today

God sobered my mind and He saved my soul
and he raised my thoughts from all filth
then back to the tavern I preached His word
the words that still ring in my ears
Go home, go home and kneel by your bedside and pray
Go home, go home, God will answer your prayers today

The crowd started leaving with heads bowed so low
the bartender picked up the keys
as he locked the door he murmured these words
the same words God spoke to me
Go home, go home and kneel by your bedside and pray
Go home, go home, God will answer your prayers today
