The words and melody are completely different on the songs!

Words and music: Hank Williams


Key G                          

(G) Standin' by the bedside of a (C) dyin' friend one (G) day,
Tears in my eyes, 'till (A7) I heard him (D7) say,
(G) Don't weep for me, don't (C) cry when I'm (G) gone,
For glory to God, to-(D7) night I'm goin' (G) home.  (G7)

(C) I'm goin' home, yes, (G) I'm goin' home,
No more will I in this (A7) sinful world (D7) roam,
(G) Jesus my savior, (C) waits upon the (G) throne,
Glory to God, to-(D7) night I'm goin' (G) home.

The sun is slowly sinkin', on this life of mine,
But there's no regretting as I look behind,
For I am so happy, that Jesus I've known,
Glory to God, tonight I'm goin' home.
