Suppertime
recorded by Jim Reeves 
written by Ira F Stanphill

 
G           C                  G
Many years ago in days of childhood
  D7                                G
I used to play till evening shadows came
                     C            G
Then winding down an old familiar pathway
    D7                             G
I'd hear my mother call at setting sun
 
     C                         G
Come home come home it's suppertime
    D7               G
The shadows lengthen fast
     C                         G
Come home come home it's suppertime
      D7            G
We're going home at last
 
Spoken:
          
Some of my fondest memories of my childhood
 
Are woven around suppertime
 
When my mother used to call from the
 
Back steps of the old home place
 
Come on home son it's suppertime
 
Oh gee but I'd love to hear that again
 
But you know for me time has woven
 
The realization for truth that's even more thrilling
 
And that's when the call comes from
 
The portals of glory to come home where it's suppertime
 
When all of God's children shall gather around the table
 
With the Lord Himself at the greatest suppertime of all
 
G    C                         G
Come home come home it's suppertime
    D7               G
The shadows lengthen fast
     C                         G
Come home come home it's suppertime
      D7            G
We're going home at last
