Was drinking alone in a tavern one day
My eyes, they hardly could see.
I heard a kind voice ringing so loud and clear,
And here’s what that voice said to me:

Chorus: “Go home, [go home]. Go home, [go home],
And kneel by your bedside and pray.
Go home, [go home]. 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’m sure there was laughter, but I could not hear
For the voice that still rang in my ear.
