      About "You're Not Home Yet"

      Lyrics for Merle Haggard - "You're Not Home Yet"

      Beautiful isle of somewhere

      If you've got two or three minutes
      I'd like to tell you a story
      And this a story about a preacher
      And I know there's a lot of stories about a lot of preachers

      But this is a story of one particular preacher
      Who went overseas to fight a war
      And this was a war for God and not for any one country
      And he fought a long hard fight and he won a lot of souls

      But this preacher got old and he was coming home
      Now he just happened to be on the same ship
      With what some of us call a celebrity

      And when the boat docked
      There were thousands of people waiting
      To meet the celebrity
      And they carried him off on their shoulders

      But there was no one there
      To meet the old preacher
      And he looked up and he said
      "Lord did you forget?"

      Well, it seemed like the Heavens just broke open
      And the Lord said, "No son I didn't forget
      But you must remember
      You're not home yet"

      You're not home, you're not home
      You're not home yet
      I can still hear my Lord's voice ringing

      "There'll be a crowd to meet you
      A choir of angels to greet you
      I didn't forget but son
      You're not home yet"
