Ready To Fly
Lynyrd Skynyrd

Mamma called this morning, said
'Son won't you come back home?
I've been feelin' good but
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

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.
Oh, I'm ready to fly.

Hard times it was '69
The war was raging on.
That's the reason my daddy left
And never made it back home
It was tough for all of us
But mamma smiled everyday
Oh, it's so hard to hear her say.

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.
Oh, I'm ready to fly.

She made sure that we would never see her cry
But those tears on the pillow she couldn't hide

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 now I'm ready to fly
I wanna see your daddy again.
I'm ready to fly fly fly
All my family and friends.
I know they're out there waiting
In a place beyond the sky.
I'm ready to fly.
