Smokey River Boys – Suppertime lyrics

When I was just a boy in days of childhood...
I used to play till evening shadows come...
Then winding down an old familiar pathway...
I heard my mother call at set of sun...

The Chorus:

Come home... Come home... It's suppertime
The shadows lengthen fast...
Come home... Come home... It's suppertime
We're goin' home at last...

Verse Number Two:

One day beside her bedside I was kneeling...
And angel wings were winnowing... The air...
She heard the call for Suppertime in heaven...
And now I know she's waiting for me there...

The Chorus:

Come home... Come home... It's suppertime
The shadows lengthen fast...
Come home... Come home... It's suppertime
We're goin' home at last...

Verse Number Three: [spoken]

In visions now I see her standing yonder...
And her familiar voice I hear once more...
The banquet table's ready up in Heaven...
And it's suppertime upon the golden shore...

The Chorus:

Come home... Come home... It's suppertime
The shadows lengthen fast...
Come home... Come home... It's suppertime
We're goin' home at last...

Tag:(spoken over the out)
Mom, it won't be long now...
We'll be having suppertime together
