Recorded by Merle Haggard
Written by Albert Edward Brumley
[C]This world is not my home [F]I’m just a-passin’ [C]through
My treasures are laid up [D7]somewhere beyond the [G7]blue
The [C]angels beckon me [F]from heaven’s open [C]door
And I can’t feel at home in this [G7]world any[C]more
Oh Lord you know [F]I have no friend like [C]You
If heaven’s not my home then [D7]Lord what will I [G7]do
The [C]angels beckon me [F]from heaven’s open [C]door
And I can’t feel at home in this [G7]world any[C]more
They’re all expecting me and [F]that’s one thing I [C]know
My Savior pardoned me and [D7]now I onward [G7]go
I [C]know He’ll take me through though [F]I am weak and [C]poor
And I can’t feel at home in this [G7]world any[C]more
Just over in glory land we’ll [F]live eterna[C]lly
The saints on every hand are [D7]shouting victo[G7]ry
Their [C]songs of sweetest praise drift [F]back from heaven’s [C]shore
And I can’t feel at home in this [G7]world any[C]more
Repeat #2
No I can’t feel at home in this [G7]world any[C]more[/chordpress]

Who is Merle Haggard?
– Merle Ronald Haggard (April 6, 1937 – April 6, 2016) was an American country singer, songwriter, guitarist, and fiddler.
Haggard was born in Oildale, California, during the Great Depression. His childhood was troubled after the death of his father, and he was incarcerated several times in his youth. After being released from San Quentin State Prison in 1960, he managed to turn his life around and launch a successful country music career. He gained popularity with his songs about the working class that occasionally contained themes contrary to anti-Vietnam War sentiment of some popular music of the time. Between the 1960s and the 1980s, he had 38 number-one hits on the US country charts, several of which also made the Billboard all-genre singles chart. Haggard continued to release successful albums into the 2000s.
He received many honors and awards for his music, including a Kennedy Center Honor (2010), a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award (2006), a BMI Icon Award (2006), and induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame (1977), Country Music Hall of Fame (1994) and Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame (1997). He died on April 6, 2016—his 79th birthday—at his ranch in Shasta County, California, having recently suffered from double pneumonia.
