~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

VERSE 1:
Rickety fence and a rocking chair
Smell of my father's pipe
Cackling goose and the summer air
The garden is green and ripe
Suddenly now I'm far away
Even if in my mind
I'm listening to my mama saying
If you can find the time

CHORUS:
Come home, come home and rest a while
Come home, come home and rest a while
Won't you come on home to Shiloh

REFRAIN:
The farther I have wandered off the fonder I have grown, Shiloh
Yeah all the while I find a smile thinking about my home
The autumn breeze is calling me away
Calling me home to Shiloh

VERSE 1:
Over the ocean the soldiers sail
The battle is finally won
His mother is pressed up against the railing
Trying to find her son
Suddenly now she sees a face
Easy to recognize
It's been years to wait for the sweet embrace
Holding him as she cries

REPEAT CHORUS:
Come home, come home and rest a while
Come home, come home and rest a while
You'd better get on home to Shiloh

REFRAIN:
The farther that you wander off the fonder you will grow, Shiloh
Yeah all the while he found a smile thinking about his home
A sweet reunion coming through in waves
Calling him home to Shiloh

BRIDGE:
I've been thinking about my home
I've never been but I will I know
The meadow green and the river wide
The valley deep and the mountain high
The saints of old are singing now (Shiloh)
My ears are ringing with the sound (Shiloh)
But greater still as clear as day (Shiloh)
I can hear my Savior saying
I can hear my Savior saying
I can hear my Savior say

REPEAT CHORUS:
Come home, come home and rest a while
Come home, come home and rest a while
You'd better get on home to Shiloh

REFRAIN:
The farther I have wandered off the fonder I have grown, Shiloh
Yeah all the while I find a smile thinking about my Home
A sweet reunion coming through in waves
Yeah the autumn breeze is calling me away
Calling me home to Shiloh
