Lyrics
An old friend lay on his dying bed
Held my hand to his bony breast
And he whispered low as I bend my head
Oh, theyre calling me home, theyre calling me come.
My time has come to sail away,
I know youd love for me to stay.
Oh, theyre calling me home, theyre calling me home.
I know youll remember me when Im gone,
Ill leave them on earth, sweet traces of gold,
So friends, gather round and bit me goodbye,
My bodys bound but my soul shall fly
Oh, theyre calling me home, theyre calling me home.
My time has come to sail away,
I know youd love for me to stay.
Oh, theyre calling me home, theyre calling me hom
