Daniel hollered goodbye to the old river barge
                 D7  D8 D/F#   G5           A5
With a dream in his head and a bride in his arms
         Gsus        A2                 Gsus      A2
Everyone said you're crazy but everyone longed to go


So from Memphis to Lakeport my grandfather came
Six girls and a boy grew up in that Florida rain
                  Gsus       A2                   Gsus         A5  A2  A
They were carried along like leaves on a river of faith they'd float


            Em
All the way home
     G                            A2     D2   G
They followed the tracks that the saints have trod
       Em       A2
By the grace of God


     D2                        G
They walked in the rain of His mercy
       D2                    G
Let it soak them down to the bone
         D2/F#
And they splashed in its puddles
    G                               A2
And danced in its streams as they'd go
            D2                        G
And oh they walked in the rain of His mercy...all the way home


I have slept in the house where my mother was born
And I've seen the sun set on the lake that gave birth to those storms
Well they may not have walked on water
But I know that their house stood firm


Em        G                           A2      D2       G
When they sat in their home when they walked along the road
          A2                  G
When they slept and when they rose
Em  G                        A2      D2       G
The words of the Lord were impressed on their minds
          Em       A2
And after all this time
            Gsus         A2                 Gsus           A2
I'm carried along like a leaf on a river of faith and I'll float


All the way home
Yes I'll follow the tracks that the saints have trod
By the grace of God
I'll walk in the rain of His mercy
let it soak me down to the bone
And I'll splash in its puddles
And dance in its streams as I go
And Lord I'll walk in the rain of Your mercy
All the way home
