This song is by Tex Ritter and appears on the album Just Beyond the Moon (1967).

Many years ago in days of childhood
I used to play till evening time would come
Then winding down that old familiar pathway
I heard my mother call at setting sun

Come home come home it's suppertime
The shadows lengthen fast
Come home come home it's suppertime
We're going home at last

Some of the fondest memories of my childhood were woven around suppertime
When mother used to call from the backsteps of the old homeplace
Come on home now son she'd say it's suppertime
My how I'd love to hear that once again

But you know time has woven for me a realization of truth that's even more thrilling
And that's when someday we'll be called to gather around the suppertable
Up there for the greatest suppertime of them all
Suppertime with our Lord
I can almost hear the call now comin' from the portals of heaven

Come home come home it's suppertime
