Thread: Song with lyrics "called home". Does anyone know it?

  1. #1

    Default Song with lyrics "called home". Does anyone know it?

    I vaguely recall a bluegrass gospel song with a harmony chorus where they sing "Called home, called home. Called home, called home".

    I could not get anything to come up on You Tube or Google that matched what I remember. It may have been a Doyle Lawson song but I am not certain.

    So if any one has any leads on the song and singer I would be grateful.

    You might be thinking of the Flatt and Scruggs gospel tune, Gone Home. It has a call and response chorus which repeats Gone Home. It's on YouTube

    Another possibility is this song, written by John Denver and performed by Hot Rize.

    Thanks Rich. That is a beautiful song. Dennis got me to the one I was wanting though its always nice when you pick up a couple of others in the process.

    I had not realized the Gone Home song was a Flatt and Scruggs number. I had heard Doyle Lawson do it live one time. He of course did it beautifully.

    I lost a dear friend Sunday morning which brought it to mind. He lived to hunt and had a heart attack with no warning, while walking the fields looking for pheasants. Now he has gone home.

    I think you'll find the song was written by Jan Garrett. She toured with John Denver years ago. A little mandolin content.

    "Bargain instruments are no bargains if you can't play them". These are the words of J. Garber.
