Hank Williams (I'm praying for the day) PEACE WILL COME Lyrics

Last updated: 10/06/2007 11:00:00 AM

(E) I'M PRAYING FOR THE DAY, WHEN THE (A) WHOLE WIDE WORLD CAN SAY,
THAT THIS (E) CRUEL WAR IT IS (B7) O'ER,
AND THE (E) BOYS WHO ARE GONE, START THEIR (A) LONG JOURNEY HOME,
OH I'M (E) PRAYING FOR THE (B7) DAY WHEN PEACE WILL (E) COME.

WHEN THE BLACK CLOUDS ROLL AWAY, AND THE SKIES ARE BRIGHT AND GAY,
AND THE GUNS ARE SILENT ONCE MORE,
AND THE BOMBS NO LONGER FLY, FROM THE PLANES UP IN THE SKY,
OH I'M PRAYING FOR THE DAY WHEN PEACE WILL COME.

OH THERE'S MOTHER AND DAD, DON'T YOU KNOW THEY'LL BE SO GLAD,
TO SEE THEIR SON'S COMING HOME,
THIS OLD WORLD WILL ROCK WITH JOY, FOR THAT FREEDOM LOVING BOY,
OH I'M PRAYING FOR THE DAY WHEN PEACE WILL COME.

SWEETHEARTS AND WIVES SO DEAR, WHO HAVE WAITED FOR THAT YEAR,
FOR THEIR LOVED ONES TO RETURN,
THIS OLD WORLD WILL BE SO GAY, ON THAT GREAT AND HAPPY DAY,
OH I'M PRAYING FOR THE DAY WHEN PEACE WILL COME.

How true it is | Reviewer: Gary Hart | 10/5/2007

How true this song is even all these years after he wrote the song, and very fitting today in America,remember 9-11.I dont think Hank recorded the song as i rcall Hank Jr. telling the story of his father,Hank wrote the song then sold it to Pee Wee King.Ive had the record for several years was sung by Hank Jr. There is a recitation to this and i will submit it if any one is interested. Thank you
