    "Lonely Tombs" Lyrics

    The Stanley Brothers

    I was strolling one day in a lonely graveyard
    When a voice from the tomb seemed to say
    I once lived as you lived walked and talked as you talk
    But from earth I was soon called away

    Oh those tombs (oh those tombs) lonely tombs (lonely tombs)
    Seemed to say in a low gentle tone
    Oh how sweet (oh how sweet) is the rest (is the rest)
    In our beautiful Heavenly home

    Every voice from the tomb seemed to whisper and say
    Living man you must soon follow me
    And I thought as I looked on those cold marble slabs
    What a dark lonely place that must be

    Then I came to the place where my mother was laid
    And in silence I stood by her tomb
    And her voice seemed to say in a low gentle tone
    I am safe with my Savior at home
