Written for the semi-finals (Round 4) of the NGADM with joshgawaldomusic. He's crushing the banjo on this one! Our competitor this round is the illustrious SoundChris (who's teamed up with JacobCadmus). Check them out, they've got some amazing music.

The past 3 rounds have been primarily orchestral and electric guitar pieces. We really wanted to do something different, so this song has neither of those things.

I sang the main verses along with my wife, and Josh and his wife sing throughout as well.

Lyrics:

You’ve been walking that tired road
Down those winding paths of gold
Come rest your weary, forgotten soul
If you’re lost then come on home

Now your faith has slipped away
And your old soul is worn and gray
Oh, you don’t have to die alone
If you’re lost then come on home

When time is spent we’ll fly away
And we’ll dance there in endless day
Now lay my bones behind the stone
I was lost, now I’m comin’ home
