Supper Time  Jimmie Davis

[C] Many years a [F] go in days of [C] childhood
I [G7] used to play till evening shadows [C] come
Then winding down an [F] old familiar [C] pathway
I [G7] heard my mother call at set of [C] sun.

Come [F] home, come [G7] home, it's supper [C] time
the [G7] shadows lengthen [C] fast
Come [F] home, come [G7] home, it's supper [C] time
we're [G7] going home at [C] last.

Some of the fondest memories of my childhood
were woven around supper time
when my mother used to call
from the back steps of the old home place
Come on home now son it's supper time.
Ah gee but I'd love to hear that once more.
But you know for me time has woven the realization
of a truth that is even more thrilling.
And that's when the call comes
from the portals of glory to come home for it's supper time.
When all of God's children shall gather round the table
with the Lord Himself At the greatest supper time of them all.

You need someone to hum or (sing softly) the chorus
While doing the recitation.
Melody played on guitar will do.
The recitation is rather long for the chorus
You might get the singer(s) or musician to tag the chorus
(repeat last line of chorus, then you won't have to hurry
the recitation)

Repeat chorus after recitation.
