ready to fly lyrics – lynyrd skynyrd

ready to fly

mama called this morning, said
‘son won’t you come back home?
i ain’t been feelin’ good and
i know it won’t be long.’
don’t keep me waiting
i wanna touch your face again.
oh, what a good life it’s been.

[chorus:]
now i’m ready to fly
i wanna see your daddy again.
i’m ready to fly
all my family and friends.
i know they’re out there waiting
in a place beyond the sky.
i’m ready to fly.

hard times of ’69
the war was ragin’ on
that’s the reason my daddy left
and never made it back home
it was tough for all of us
but mama smiled everyday
oh, it’s so hard to hear her say.

[chorus:]
now i’m ready to fly
i wanna see your daddy again.
i’m ready to fly
all my family and friends.
i know they’re out there waiting
in a place beyond the sky.
so, i’m ready to fly.

she made sure she’d never let us see her cry
but those tears on the pillow she couldn’t hide

[chorus:]
i’m ready to fly
i wanna see your daddy again.
i’m ready to fly
all my family and friends.
i know they’re out they’re waiting
in a place beyond the sky.
