"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)

help me mend this fence I built and put the past behind ,

(C) (G) (D)

(hummmm) help me mend this fence I built and put the past

(G) (D) (G)

behind coz there's 1 last fence to mend

I like the this.  Good story line.  Have you finished the song yet (I mean musically)?  I'm brand new to this site so if you've finished it, I just haven't found it yet.  Looks like you might have been looking for some help toward the end and I've honestly got nothing right now to help out with, but I'm sure this was posted a long time ago.
