"1 Last Fence To Mend"



(G) (Am7)

I got a call from my mama ,last Sunday night

(D) (G)

said son hurry home ,your dad's not feelin right

(G) (C)

I know he's never been all that good to you....

(Am7) (D) (G)

but the doctor's not sure, if he'll pull on through



(G) (Am7)

So I jumped in my car, drove extra fast

(D) (G)

prayin to the Lord, for time to fix the past

(G) (C)

even tho he's made my life a livin hell....

(Am7) (D) (G)

he'd be so proud to see that I'm doin' well



(chorus)



(Bb) (Em) (C) (G)

God, grant me a little more time, please..... if you can,

(C) (G)

I've got so much for him to see and do.....

(D) (G)

and 1 last fence to mend too





(G) (Am7)

I rushed in the house ,hoping there was time

(D) (G)

saw my mama kneelin ,at his beside cryin

(G) (C)

I reached down to grab him by his frail hand .....

(Am7) (D) (G)

said "Daddy ,please fight this longer if you can"



(G) (Am7)

But in my heart of hearts, I had to face

(D) (G)

that this might be the last, time we'd embrace

(G) (C)

so I looked him in the eyes and let my heart speak the truth....

(Am7) (D) (G)

said Daddy I want you to know, how much I love you





(chorus)



(Bb) (Em) (C) (G)

God, I know he's bein called home but I need more time

(C) (G) (D) (G)
