When He Talked About His Home
by The Nelons

Album: Come On Home


Verse 1
Jesse was a hardworking farmer
Put his whole life in his land
He paid his bills on Friday
Gave his tithe on Sunday

His word was as sure as his hand.
And Jesse wasn't much of a talker
Just did what he said he would do
He loved his wife and family
And redefined what's manly
As all that was faithful and true

Chorus
And when he talked about heaven
When he talked about Jesus
There was glory in his eyes
That could answer all your "whys"
Open windows to your soul
When he talked about his family
When he talked about a journey
There was something he could see
Birthed a longing deep in me
When he talked about his home.

Verse 2
Years have gone by since he left us
I landed a job and moved away
Left the straight and narrow
To see how I would fare
Where bright lights and excitement filled my days
But with all of the sounds and the voices
Another voice kept ringing in my ears.
That sweet old testimony
Broke a heart so stony
And called me 'cross the miles and through the years

'Cause when he talked about heaven
When he talked about Jesus
There was glory in his eyes
That could answer all your "whys"
Open windows to your soul
When he talked about his family
When he talked about a journey
There was something he could see
Birthed a longing deep in me
When he talked about his home.
