Am          E   Am         D   D/F#
When I get Home I will see all
G         Bm         Em   Fdim7
The holy men I read about.
Peter and John, James, Luke, and Paul
And brother Tom without a doubt.
           Am               G/B
And I do believe there will be 
      C           D   D/F#
King David at the harp
G          Bm                Em    Fdim7
A song of praise with every chord.
                Am        G/B
What a sight to see, the redeemed and 
    C                D/F#  G     C/G      G   [Note 1]
The angels gathered round worshiping the Lord.
  C    G/B  Am7        G
What a day that will be
D [Note 2]              Am7 [repeat main intro]
Oh what a day that will be!


When we get Home, our Eternal Home
There'll be no more sick and dying.
No one is sad, no one is alone
And there will be no more crying.
He will wipe away every tear 
From His children's eyes
And put a smile upon their faces.
What a happy day when we see 
Our Lord in Paradise
Crowned as King of Kings.
What a day that will be
Oh what a day that will be!  [chorus intro]

Comments about this tab

wwr_nature86 - 2004-12-09

on the second time through while playing the intro line with the dm7 phil will strum on beats one and two but will add tap harmonics on beats 3-4. this is achieved by holding the chord and tapping with your index on the 17th fret. fool around with it. once you get it it is very easy to sound exactly like phil. and also for the cM7 in the intro it is easier to play the voicing on the 8th fret c E-8 a-x d-9 g-9 b-8 e-x. this puts your fingers at ease as they dont have far to travel.
